#40665 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Edit control on Video inside editor should not show up before selecting

I added a video using wp_video_shortcode in a page. When I come to edit the page the floating action panel (with Edit and Delete buttons) appears if I just hover the mouse over the video. When I click on these buttons, nothing happens as if they are not functional! They however work once I select the video.

The action panel should never appear without the video selected. Hope the attached screen cast would help to understand the issue better.

Above does not happen for images.

As shortcodes and the classic editor have since been superseded by blocks and the block editor, I'm going to close this issue.

Ok. It sounds reasonable. But from user experience perspective, action panel appearing such a way is going to be confusing for users. At least that's how I see it. May be I am wrong.
