#54051 new defect (bug)

Making a sentence or paragraph bold is intermittent

Description (last modified by hellofromTonya)

When I highlight a sentence and attempt to bold it, only part of the sentence gets bold. I then highlight and press bold again and might get the full sentence bold. Sometimes I have to go through this process a number of times to make the sentence bold. This slows me down and is a bug.

Hello @MikeLev,

Welcome to WordPress Core's Trac! Thank you for reporting this bug.

During today's test triage, multiple testers were able to reproduce the problem you reported. It appears to be intermittent. I updated the ticket's title.

The team was able to reproduce it on WordPress version 5.8 but not 5.7. I moved it into 5.8.2 for investigation.
