    Creating a hyperlink using the icon, and then pressing backspace into it (eg. creating a hyperlink http://www.google.com, then pressing backspace 2 times) makes the cursor forever typing in the hyperlink. Is there any way to exit the hyperlink and continue typing normally without having to delete or remove the whole hyperlink?

    Hi,

    I tried to reproduce the described behavior, but to no avail. You can see the test case here: http://screencast.com/t/m9sbNHDEbHyE.

    It may be a firefox specific problem.

    Hi Joey,

    This is indeed specific to Firefox. With the steps shown, Firefox puts the cursor in the a tag. This cannot be handled in Kendo Editor as it is the browser that mostly control the range and the selection. 

    However, the user can get out of the anchor by using the arrow keys.
