VisualEditor: Typing at the end of linked causes DM and CE to get out of sync
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description


Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

Details

bzimport set Reference to bz48171.

This doesn't happen in IE.

  1. Place the cursor at the end of a link.
  2. Type some text
  3. See that the text doesn't appear to be linked, but the link inspector option is available

Short term solution as decided by Trevor, Inez and James: Make links not auto-extend in the model, and fix IE so it doesn't auto-extend in the view (to make it work like other browsers).

Trevor's commit has been merged; assigning to Inez for the IE-specific fixes to come.
