Just to clear the situation:
- There are two editors, one in Edit mode and the other in Preview;
- The one with the Preview mode should always allow users to click on the links.
Could you please verify if the above steps are correct? If they are not, please provide information which is the editor, where the links should act properly.
Maybe a simple demonstrative project would be very useful to understand what exactly should be achieved.
