Redactor inline images rather than shortcode?

Is it possible to turn image shortcodes in Redactor into inline images (and have them still be 'Perch' images)?

I am guessing it would need a custom Redactor config that would re-write the shortcodes into URLs and insert them... but I don't even know where to start! I'm reading both Perch and Redactor docs, but struggling to 'bridge the gap'.

Has anyone had a stab at this/had any success? Any pointers greatly appreciated - will keep plugging away in the meantime and post any success.

Thanks Keir,

I’d be really like the same functionality and would be very interest to hear if you or anyone makes any breakthroughs.

I think that while integration with Assets was a step forward, seeing a shortcode in the editor rather than the actual image is a step back.

How about trying SimpleMDE editor? It uses shortcodes but also has a side-by-side preview mode.

(SimpleMDE does use markdown however)

Hi Clive,

Just taken a look at SimpleMDE editor, very impressive. Looks like it's possible to configure the toolbar too. Very nice.

Thanks for chiming in, all. I'll have a little play with SimpleMDE.

Do any of the other RTEs support Perch Assets better? CKEditor etc.
