This is a follow up issues toabout pre-populating the alt/title configuration for the Image file type in File Entity with the tokens from the default alt and title fields..
- The above patch creates to fields, in the Manage Fields tab, for the Image file type allowing users to enter texts for the "alt" and "title" attributes. However, by default the texts entered in those field are not used in any other way than they are stored in the database and viewable in the content admin interfaces.
- The patch is also adding two fields, in the Manage Displays tab, where it is possible to configure from where Drupal will populate the alt/title attributes for images. These are blank by default and thus no text is placed in the output of those attributes.
By default they should be populated with the field tokens from 1 so they work without the need of any additional configuration required. The majority of sites will most likely use the defaults, thus this would avoid them some pain in having to find out why this is not working out-of-the-box.
I have set status to postponed for now as the above mentioned patch needs to be committed first.
