Clicking on empty space opens the link above it

Postby Peter7885 » Thu May 05, 2016 7:26 am

When i paste a link in the editor and i don't hit Enter, so there are no lines under the link, when i place the cursor under the link and click on the blank space it opens the link even that the cursor is not over the link. I am not sure if this is a bug, but it is not convenient, especially when open links with single click option is selected.

Hi,

Just curious - how do you get the cursor under the link if you don't press Enter? I'm assuming by 'under the link' you mean the next line below the line on which you pasted the link?

Regards,

I think Peter7885 meant mouse pointer. I can confirm this issue too.

Yes, it makes sense if you swap mouse cursor for mouse pointer (I can see the same behaviour, though I'm not sure it is a bug - it working as I expect it would anyway, with no blank line under the link, the entire text entry field is essentially the same line).

Most likely you're right.

Hi all,

Yes, I confirm the issue. Thanks for the report. The problem seems to be actually in Microsoft's RichEdit control, but I'll see what we can do to fix it.
