This plugin improves selection handling for Widget elements. Due to some browser bugs additional handling is required to allow the widget selection.
For example, the plugin makes it possible to use the Ctrl / Cmd + A keyboard shortcuts to select widgets even though they are at the beginning or end of the editor content.
This plugin also integrates with the Select All plugin.
This is an official plugin provided and supported by CKEditor developers.
The recommended way to install all CKEditor add-ons is to create a custom build by using Online builder. To do that, click the Add to my editor button on the plugin page. When you are done, click the Build my editor button on the right side of the page to go to Online builder.
Note: This add-on is already selected to be a part of your current build.
