As per @Ryasmeen comment
The shortcut key for VisualEditor to open up link inspector also brings up VE's own link inspector resulting into a situation like this:
Steps to reproduce:
- On an article with machine suggested Add link context item open, click on the highlighted word itself.
- Use a shortcut - cmd + up arrow+k ( use control key for non-mac computers)
- The VE link inspector will open and will overlap the context item.
