--- Comment #4 from James Forrester <> ---
I don't know about this; this is intentional behaviour to give users the
ability to do something further with their selection (often laboriously-made)
if they want to, especially for those primarily using keyboard input.

When you click away from the inspector, we move the cursor to where you clicked
it. However, if you're using keyboard driving, you might want to adjust the
item you just selected and did an action on, e.g. adding bold/etc. styling.

In general, we've designed the editor so that removing the selection using the
keyboard needs you to destroy the selection (type over it) or move the cursor
with the cursor keys. I don't think we want to move away from this model, so
I'm going to mark this as WONTFIX, but I'd be happy to discuss further if
people think this is a mistake.
