This PR is part of a series of PRs to fix the same issue. Most recently, a change in ownership of selection state has brought about an important refactor which regressed the previous PR before it was merged: #15552. The solution there is no longer viable, but the unit test in that PR may still serve as a helpful tool to prevent more regressions.


This PR is intended to fix a regression of part of this issue: wordpress-mobile/gutenberg-mobile#828 , specifically, when inline content is pasted.

Companion PR.

How has this been tested?

This has been tested using the steps here:
wordpress-mobile/gutenberg-mobile#828 (comment)

Types of changes

This is a bug fix, but currently only resolves a part of the original issue. It serves as an incremental improvement. Also, this PR renames some local variables for clarity.


  • My code is tested.
  • My code follows the WordPress code style.
  • My code follows the accessibility standards.
  • My code has proper inline documentation.
  • I've included developer documentation if appropriate.
