Description Piotrek Koszuliński (Reinmar) 2014-09-18 01:12:33 PDT
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Open the attached sample. It contains editable divs with non-editable block islands at the beginning and the end of them.
2. Try steps explained in the sample - CTRL+A, select all from context menu, CTRL+end/home, setting selection programatically.

What is the expected behavior?
Selection should include all the contents of editable element from the first non-editable block to the last one.

What went wrong?
Selection is either totally lost (first case) or a collapsed selection is set (second case).

I am aware that this is a tricky case but it works fine in all other browsers (except of course Blink). I tested the attached sample on Firefox and IE11 and both - visual part and selection API part - were working all right.

This issue was reported multiple times on CKEditor's bug tracker - http://dev.ckeditor.com/ticket/11064. It is getting more and more important for adoption of CKEditor widgets (wrappers for non-editable content inside editor) which proved to be very useful and many users start using them.

Is there any progress on this issue? It is still reproducible (same as Blink issue https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=415474).
