Block references don't work with nested code block

  • Create a page with at least 2 bullets

  • Under some bullet create a nested code block.

    like this
  • On another page embed a block reference to the bullet with the code block

  • An anchor will be added AFTER the code block’s trailing backticks, breaking the code block.

  • The embed will instead embed the whole page.

  • Trying to link the block again will actually create a new broken anchor again.

Add a single markdown-style block quote > and the link is treated as a link to the entire note instead of a link to the block:

Same as above, but scrolling the preview note to illustrate:
