VisualEditor: <nowiki> tags added to all markup in paragraph, including pre-existing
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

At https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_American_Dad!_characters&curid=2082680&diff=564675517&oldid=564302759 a user added a link using wikitext. The VisualEditor added <nowiki> tags around it (correct according to apparent design, incorrect according to desired behaviour).

However, it also added <nowiki> tags around every other bit of pre-existing markup in the paragraph. This is incorrect according to my understanding of the design because even if they did want to include a literal string surrounded by square brackets they did not want to alter the existing markup.

Bug 5069 comment 5 suggests to me that this isn't that bug but a different one, but not what number that other bug is.

Sorry, typo in that last line. It should refer to Bug 50569 comment 5

Really sorry, but I meant Bug 50659 comment 5
Dyslexia + typos to blame so entirely my fault.

This seems to have been fixed (I now can't reproduce) in the re-write of nowiki-ing code; sorry for the bug.

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.
