Please how to resolve this?

When you add content before the shortcode the shortcode content is fixed but the body content is still wrong in its location

if you add a special html character then it still is wrong as the special character is splitted and the body content is still at the wrong location. It should be behind the shortcode.



very weird behaviour of the editor in rtl mode.

Frankly there's no straightforward way to fix this. Typing shortcodes by hand follows the same rules as typing HTML by hand. Perhaps this is the reason why this hasn't been reported earlier, shortcodes have been used in WP for many years :)

Closing as worksforme as this has been the case for many years. Please feel free to reopen with a patch or ideas/info on how to solve and whether this fits user expectations.
