Changing file name adds .md extension for md style links

Steps to reproduce

  1. Have a file named original
  2. In the file named linker, make an md-style link to original: [The file](original)
  3. Change the name of original to modified

Expected result

Link in linker should now be [The file](modified)

Actual result

Link in linker is now [The file](

This is the only way to put formulas and named links in tables, where vertical space is at a premium. This should behave the same as wiki-style links.


  • Operating system: 11.0.1
  • Obsidian version: 0.9.20

This is not a bug. This current behavior is correct (we fixed this recently). The standard markdown links are for compatibility with other software and other software expect the extension .md to be present.
