VisualEditor: Link inspector in a slug can select content in the previous or following paragraphs
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

If the cursor is in a slug and you press the link button, the selection jumps to the nearest content - which crosses out of the local <p> and into the <p> beforehand or afterwards (whoops).

Link inspector should detect that it is in a slug and not attempt to mangle the selection with nearestContentOffset, but just trigger with a 'blank' selection.

As a follow-up, if you have <start of document> <block slug> <block slug> <block slug> <block slug> <p> in a document, and have the cursor in the second slug, pressing Ctrl+K will move the selection to the top of the document and put the contents there (whee); in the third or fourth, to the first word of the <p>. Not great.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
