I’ve read several other threads about clicking on links, including the changes made to Obsidian over the months, but there’s still one thing I can’t wrap my head around.
It seems an inconsistency to me, but wanted to double check before reporting it as a bug.
This is the scenario:
- Editing mode: on
- Source: off (that means it is in live preview mode)
- Keyboard cursor on a link (that means that the link is in editing, you can see the double brackets around the link)
Now, if I pick my mouse, is there a way to open that same link the keyboard cursor is on in the same tab?
These are the things I tried:
1: Click on the link → it moves the keyboard cursor
2: CMD+click on the link → it opens the link in a new tab
3: CMD+OPT+click on the link → it opens the link in a new pane
The inconsistency is that if I set Source to on (that is the live preview is off) the second option (CMD+click) actually opens the link in the SAME tab.
Here’s a recap of my tries:
Am I missing something?
PS: I’m on Obsidian 1.0.0 on Mac
