Additional information

OK I reproduced in an fresh vault.

will be fixed in 0.13.16

Thanks for the quick response.
Due to the severity of this bug, I don’t want to work on any of my files until I have the new version.
Do you know how long it will be until I can update to 0.13.16?

Is the content of the note critical to reproducing this? Or can it be any 2-pane view where pane2 links to pane1?

The content is critical. It needs to have math in it.

Ok, thanks. I don’t use much math in my notes at all. But pretty sure I’ve hit this exact bug multiple times. Well, either way- glad it’s fixed.
