    Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Issue summary

      Cannot add inline comment to a string or substring which is similar to link (into another Confluence page).

      Steps to reproduce

      1. In a space, create two pages: Test1 and Test2
      2. On Test1, add the following text: "Link to a page"
      3. Underneath that text, add a link in which the link text is "Link to a page" and the target is the Test2 page
      4. Save the page
      5. Highlight any of the words in the text (not link) "Link to a page" and add an inline comment

      Observed behaviour

      I see the below error:

      We can't add your inline comment; the section you highlighted may contain a macro or user mention. Try highlighting plain text.
      

      Expected behaviour

      The user should be able to add a comment.
