Drag and drop (cut and paste) didn't work in Chrome
Open, Stalled, Needs TriagePublic

Description

What happened:

  1. First highlighted the text to move
  2. Then dragged it to the position I wanted it to go
  3. Finally when the text above that section disappeared, I hoped I might get it back by switching to source editing

I can't reproduce this. Transient issue?

Ed did track down what was causing this in Safari (T168901), so there's a chance there's a related-but-harder-to-trigger Chrome issue. Webkit cousins, and all.

There's not much for us to do if we can't reproduce this...
