Link to Selected Text possible issue


In the side bar there is a tantalizing ‘link to selected text’ button. I am not sure that I am using it correctly, but it does not work for me and I cannot find a help entry for it.

If I highlight a piece of text and then open the sidebar, the text gets deselected, and (hence?) nothing appears in the box.

If I open the sidebar first and then try to select the text, the side bar closes and I’m back to square 1.

I’m on Chrome Version 42.0.2311.90 m running on Windows 7. I’ve also tried it on my Nexus 4 running Android 5.0.1 and Chrome 41.0.2272.96 with the same results.


You are quite right, this is busted and has been for some weeks now. @blake, can we have it back, please?
