The the site admin or editor selects text in the WYSIWYG control and presses the "Add Media" button, the link has the media filename or title as the anchor text.

Instead, the anchor text should be the highlighted text.

If I understand right, the idea is to turn the selected text into a link when selecting a file from the media library that will produce a link (i.e. not image, video or audio). Perhaps we can do that, would be an "extension" of turning the selected text into a link when pasting an URL.

Moving to the "Editor" component for consideration for the block editor.
