We observed users to be reluctant to click on links when editing them because they expected the links to open. It seems the hand cursor may be conveying that idea. Thus, we may want to:
- Use the text editing cursor for links on the source and target areas.
- Use the hand cursor when the user hovers a link with shift pressed, since links are opened when using such modificator.
- Use the hand link when there is text selected in the translation and the user hovers a link in the source text. We want to communicate that an action with side-effects is about to happen since the target text will be turned into a link once the user clicks on the source link.
