#8715 confirmed Bug

Problems with changing text of a link - some unification is needed

Description (last modified by Jakub Ś)

To reproduce:

  1. Open replacebycode sample
  2. Double click on link - a popup will open. Click OK on the popup. The link should be still selected. Another way to do it is to simply select the link with a mouse but there are some differences.
  3. Start typing to change text of a link

Expected Result:
New text gets linked.

Actual Result:

  • Webkit and Blink - Only first letter gets linked (CKEditor 3.0).
  • IE - text gets linked but till the first space (IMO this is correct)
  • Firefox - If you select the whole link with a mouse - text typed even with spaces will get linked. If you doule click on a link and start typing link will be lost. This is because #8195 bug.

There are definetely problems in Safari, Opera and Chrome which should be fixed. As for Firefox - it will probably hard to make it work as other browsers.

NOTE: There is also a feature request for adding new text filed "Link Text" in Link Dialog #7154. It may solve the above issues but when implementing this feature one should take this ticket into account.

It turns out that Blink/Webkit issue was also reported in #9146. I'm leaving both open but most likely only Webkit/Blink issues are fixable so both tickets will be closed once this is done.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
