Accessing media for places and place details in RM8

Mapping of places and especially place details is much improved in RM8 and is the main reason that I decided to move to it from RM7.
But I now cannot view the media I have linked to places and to place details when I click on their icons on the edit individual persons screen. I could do so on RM7 but now I have to exit the person screen and open the places screen and then click until I reach the place and place detail.
Is there any hope that the means to view the media without having to go to such lengths will get restored in an update in the foreseeable future?

Confirming this request has been reported to development.
