Adding automatic escape for alias in tables

Hello everyone,
I’m writing this post to find an easy and clean solution for my linking problem in obsidian. I want to link the unlinked mentions in my tables by using the ‘Unlinked mentions’ feature in obsidian without breaking the table.

Things I have tried

I tried using the detect unlinked mentions feature in tables and the table broke. (Problem: Escape \ | isn’t added automatically)

What I’m trying to do

I’m trying to add links with aliases to my table without breaking it, adding \ | manually by hand or using the advanced tables plugin, after I added all the links.

The last point is mentioned, because obisidian continues trying to link unlinked mentions, even if they are part of a link in a table because the pipe isn’t recognized as part of an alias link but as a divider for a new cell. This gets messy and I loose track of what I have and haven’t linked.

Does anyone have a solution or a plugin for my problem?

Thank you in advance! :slight_smile:
