#52659 new enhancement

Insert Link tool should not apply anchor tag before anchor has been applied

With the anchor around the text before any link is applied, the user sees the text as underlined and can mistakenly believe the link is already applied. If the user believes the link is already applied s/he may hit the escape key to hide the insert-link tool and they of course lose their work as the text reverts to its pre-linked state.
