Why does Insert Link in a Item Form always adds the link to the list to the URL?

I create an Edit Form on list named Pitch. One of the fields (string) contains a link to an external site. I not only want to display this link at the form but also want to insert a direct link for the user to click. Therefore I use the Insert Link. But to my great surprise ALWAYS the link to the list is added in front of the URL. It looks like this:

The insert link action and how to enter the link

 

Before inserting the link I display for clarity of this message the URL and the Item URL.

When published the form shows a very strange link to my surprise:

That won't work for sure.

But what to do? Or is this a bug?
