Editing content with a link at the very end makes it impossible to add content after such link. Trying to place the cursor at the end always keeps it inside the link as illustrated in the image below:
This is a general issue of Visual Editor on mobile (on desktop support was provided to control the cursor placement in these cases). However, it is particularly relevant for Section Translation where individual sentences are edited. This issue surfaced in recent research with Bengali Wikipedia editors:
[...] the difficulty of adding additional text beyond the final word of prose when it is part of a link. As shown to the right, this editor wanted to add additional text after the link, but wasn’t able to move the cursor outside of the link. They repeatedly inadvertently added text to the link. This ended up being a complete blocker to the editor feeling able to continue translating the target sentence.
Some ideas to improve the situation:
- Once the cursor is at the end of a link, taping outside (after the contents) moves it at the end after the link. In that way a second tap could lead to moving out of the link.
- Make the editor behave as if there was an additional space after the content in these cases.
