VisualEditor: Leaving a link while the inspector is open can remove the link
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

0. Open a document with links already in it.

  1. Click on a MediaWiki link, then click the icon to open the inspector.
  2. Click anywhere else in the document to lose focus.
  3. You're link has now been removed :(

Note that this doesn't happen if you have just created a link, or if you have edited a link, so I assume this is functionality for letting people abandon the creation of a link.

The only way to remove a link should be with the delete icon in the inspector, or clear formatting.

This doesn't appear to affect external links.
