Custom name for links doesn't work correctly inside of tables

Steps to reproduce

Try to create any kind of a link inside of table, while changing it’s custom name.
Example in a screenshot below.
Seems like | symbol breaks it since it’s supposed to be used for tables.

Expected result

It should simply change links name, as if it wasn’t in a table.

Actual result

It just breaks the custom name into next field


  • Operating system:
    Ubuntu Linux 20.04
  • Obsidian version:

Additional information


Have you tried escaping the | in the link with a \ ?

Oh, yeah it works like a charm. Thanks, it’s not so obvious, would be glad if it was mentioned in help at Format Your Notes: tables.
Thanks for help!
