IE 10/11 Issue with link popup while an image is selected

This issue only seems to happen for me in IE (I only tested 10 and 11) because of the specific way you can scale the images within the editor. When you bring up the link dialog while having an image selected, you could have the resizing area cover the UI and prevent normal use. As you can see in the pictures below, the red area is not clickable by if the resize handles are present.

In most cases you won't notice it. If you have a new link or link type is URL, the link dialog deselects the image and focuses the URL input box when it opens. However as you can see in my example and in our App, we use a dropdown dialog as our first option which does not change focus, so the image is not deselected.

You can double click the button and that causes a deselection and then click of the button, but this is not ideal. Also things like using the dropdown seem to cause focus updates as well.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. go to the demosite: in IE10/11
  2. select the image and give the image a link type of anchor and set it as name of "quotes" from the dropdown
  3. select the image again and open the link dialog
  4. You should see the image drag handles still selected and floating on top of the link dialog. You can drag the box around til the buttons are under the invisible inner box of the drag handles

If you need any other information from me, let me know.

It's a known IE bug and there's no solution. There are some workarounds, but risk and damage of using them is higher than troubles this visible handles make.

Closing as won't fix, but of course it would be great if Microsoft finally fixed it ;).
