After the update of WordPress 4.9.6, I got a very strange issue that I am not able to write anything in WordPress editor in visual mode.

When I'm trying to switch from text to visual I am getting this span code instead of text.

<span style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 
0;" data-mce-type="bookmark" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span>

Can anyone help me out with this issue? I am not able to write anything.

  • Are there any errors or messages in your browser dev tools console?

I disable JetPack and everything is working.

    And you had the exact same problem as the original question? Can you explain why JetPack broke visual mode in the first place?
