Sure, I was just able to reproduce this in the help vault just now so I’ll likely submit a bug report of this not working in the next week.
It’ll include a short video of me selecting link characters in the help vault and having it mostly working as intended, though sometimes clicking through regardless. It’s not exactly something I can discern why it happens as it’s inconsistent, though you’ll be able to see it happening in the video.
+1. i keep accidentally opening external links in live preview when i try to edit them.
it would be good if normal click didn’t open the link, but only ctrl click did as was suggested here. (ctrl + shift + click in new pane, again, as was suggested here)
One more thing. My old workflow was:
Open an existing note E.g., Daily Note > Type out link to new page E.g. [[thislink]] > Ctrl + Click to create new page and simultaneously open the link.
That last step no longer works either. So I have to click out of the brackets then go back and click on the link. For someone who does this many times a day this has made the ability to create new links in a note and then follow them significantly harder.
Just tested it. Alt-Enter does not do anything on my machine.
Can you just add in a setting to allow people to switch it back to the way it was before? It was dead simple before and now I have to train myself on two different keyboard shortcuts for things I previously did with a click or a ctrl click.
Another option would be to flip it to be the opposite way from how it was before. Click on a link and it opens the link. Ctrl click the link and it edits it. Unless it is already being edited in which case it opens the link.
I just spent some time refining and improving this feature request to better describe the functionality I’m looking for.
This changes the language from the removal/reversal of a feature to the positive addition of a new set of features: a set of supporting configurable options to reinstate single click expanding within Live Preview Mode.
