When editing a post and using the image uploader, any unused link references are completely removed.

For example, this post has three image references, only one of which is used ([3]) in the body of the post:

After uploading a fourth image, references [1] and [2] are completely removed (and the remaining references are renumbered to become [1] and [2]):

I sometimes write link references before using them in the body of the post and sometimes remove images temporarily before reinserting them elsewhere in the post so this is inconvenient.

(Note: this also applies for the iOS app, having the same behavior)

    This would have to be changed on the web version too. This is how the image uploader and link inserter have worked everywhere pretty much since they were created. – animuson Nov 16 '16 at 0:27
