I can't reproduce that. When you create link to anchor the code looks like below. There are no ids assigned to link.

<p><a href="#test">#test</a></p>



<p><a id="test" name="test"></a></p>

Could you perhaps provide screen cast for this problem?

If you have link:

<p><a href="">TEST</a></p>

And add an anchor to that link:

<p><a href="" id="test" name="test">TEST</a></p>

And then remove the anchor using the context menu you will get:

<p><a href="" id="test">TEST</a></p>

Expected id attribute to be deleted as well as name.

Ok, so you are creating a link, select it and create anchor on it. Next you remove the anchor and id stays.

Lines responsible for removing the anchor within the link are located here:

I’m not convinced that removing id in all cases is a good idea but it would make sense to remove it when it is the same as name attribute. We could add compare statement there if id and name are the same, we could remove both.

Yes, I think that condition is a good idea. Thanks!
