Recently I started to link more of my notes to specific Headings on other notes instead of the whole thing, but there has been a feature included with this that pulls me back every time I do so. Is it possible for me to eliminate the highlight that appears on the whole text once i click the link? I know it just appears for a brief second before I click but I find it really removes the smoothness I enjoy from the program since it takes an extra second to load everything with the correct format.
You could try this:
background-color: unset !important;
It removes the highlight when clicking on the embedded link icon and jumping to another note, but it may have unintended effects elsewhere. Give it a go.
