A new link on my page to another page: If I key the 'flyover text' it replaces the text I highlighed to make the link.

Description (last modified by ocean90)

imho there are three parts to a hotlink on my wordpress blog page / post.
1) the text I choose to highlight, which will turn blue later and be clickable by my readers.
2) the URL (which I copy from another Firefox window) of the page I wish my user to be able to link to.
Once I chose as in 1), the 'link' icon turns on and, when I click that, I get to input 2) via ctrl-v. Then I am looking at part 3:
3) the text which should be flyover when my user mouses over the blue text I chose to highlight. I generally set this to reflect whose web page I am sending the user to, should she/he click here.

Now for the description of my problem
If I leave 3) blank, the hotlink works, but there is no 'flyover' text when anyone mouses over that hotlink.
If I enter text into 3), that text replaces my 'blue text'. for example, if my hotlink text was 'here', and the url was wikipedia, and my flyover text was 'wikipedia artice', the text in my blog would change from 'here' to 'wikipedia article'.
This is new. I've been on WordPress for four years. I've done hotlinks often.
The bug may be old: I've broken my arm, and spent weeks not typing due to loss of motion etc. etc. Now when I try to to a new blog entry, I have this problem.

WP version: 4.2.2
Theme: Twenty-Eleven 1.6
TinyMCE Spellcheck 1.3
and, inactive, Akismet3.0.0 (never activated).

Please help. I try to let my readers know where they're going, so I need the 'flyover text' to show up for them when they mouse over a hotlink.
Thanks
