Steps to reproduce

  1. Go e.g. to https://ckeditor.com/ckeditor-5-builds/#balloon
  2. Try making a selection (using your mouse) which:
  • starts in one of the list items
  • and which spans outside the list

As you’ll see – the selection can’t leave the list. See the attached screenshot.

The expected behaviour is that the focus point of the selection follows the caret.

Unfortunately, I can’t reproduce this on a bare contentEditable element. However, I was able to reproduce it on CKEditor 4 and its complete rewrite CKEditor 5 (they share no code) which means that there’s some trigger but it’s very unlikely to be CKEditor’s bug.
