Duplicate anchor text word

There is a bug in anchor link placing tool. When I highlight a word to anchor link and press “anchor link” option and after putting the URL and hitting “OK”, it does not anchor the actual link I highlighted, but instead it creates the duplicate word right next to the word I highlighted and anchors that duplicated word instead. This way I have to manually delete the actual word in the end, which what we don’t want. Please fix this bug ASAP.

Thank you!

Hi @anupviews,

Sorry for the lack of response when you originally created this. A lot has changed since this ticket was created.

I tested using the classic editor and couldn't reproduce the issue you reported, adding links worked as expected. In your report you didn't mention where the issue is occurring, so I assumed this is what you were referring to.

If that's wrong and the issue is still happening, please do correct me.

In the meantime I'll close the issue.
