Hello wonderful people,

We have embed link functionality in one of our products, which states the

1. If the focus is not in the text editor and if user clicks "Insert
Link" for any of the evidence displayed in the right side panel of the
narrative page, then it will embed the particular evidence at the end of
the editor (where the text ends).
2. If user has highlighted some text in the text editor and clicks the
"Insert Link" for any of the evidence, then that particular text converts
into a hyperlink.
3. If user has placed the cursor anywhere in the editor for example:
between any text and then click "Insert Link" for any of the evidence, then
the evidence will get embed where the cursor is placed.

While accessing this area using keyboard, we are not able to perform the
2nd and 3rd point mentioned above.
