Steps to reproduce:
1.Open a page with VE
2.Select a gallery
3.Open the Special character inserter
4.Select a character
Unlike other elements like math/hiero/image which gets placed right after the gallery even if it is selected, in this case the special character replaces the whole gallery.
The behavior should be uniform for all cases.
