That sounds a lot like T281771: Prevent contenteditabe like experiences (cursor placement; menu selection for cutting text) in AddLinkArticleTarget (cc @mewoph), the patch we ended up with there only adjusted the mobile toolbar dialog but it should probably also apply to the desktop one.

mewoph moved this task from Backlog to May 24 – May 28 on the Add-Link board.
mewoph edited projects, added Growth-Team (Current Sprint); removed Growth-Team.
mewoph moved this task from Incoming to In Progress on the Growth-Team (Current Sprint) board.

iPadOS has desktop user agent so desktop site will be loaded by default. When the same changes from mobile are applied, a few odd issues came up:

  1. The font size of the article text is increased to 24px (from 14px). The font sizes on the annotation views are inconsistent. Oddly the computed style on the paragraph node has the same calculation (0.875 * 1em).
  2. When navigating between annotations, the focus state remains on the previous button that was clicked.

Checked on testwiki wmf.15 on iPad (8th generation) (iOS14.6) - the issue with the keyboard is fixed.
