TinyMCE does not recognize finger selections in WIndows 8 / MSIE 10
|Reported by:||stephdau||Owned by:|
MSIE 10 (and/or Windows 8) seems to treat finger selection and mouse/keyboard selections differently. A symptom of this can been seen in the attached screenshots, when selecting text in visual mode with one's fingers vs a keyboard or standard mouse.
When selected via iOS style gestures, TinyMCE does not recognize the text as selected, and therefore does not let the user insert a link (note how the link tool is disabled). When selected via the mouse or kb, all is well. Everything also works fine with touch, mouse and kb when in text mode, pointing to an issue in TinyMCE.

This might be affecting more versions of MSIE, or different contexts.
