Steps to reproduce

In text areas Edge tries to snap to words or syntax elements when selecting text. So its not possible to edit e. g. Wikipedia articles. When I want to select a single word placed in Wiki-Syntax the Edge snaps the word including brackets or something. I have no chance to select just the single word with the mouse when its written inside any syntax elements like brackets or something. The browser should offer an option to switch this selecting feature off.
