Email Address with Umlaut parses incorrectly by the reader

Steps to reproduce

  • enter an email address with ‘ä’, ‘ü’, or ‘ö’ in it into a note
  • switch to reading mode

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


  • tested without plugins and in Sandbox mode

Expected result

“ä[email protected]” should be parsed the same as “[email protected]

Actual result

[email protected]” is parsed as an email address in full, but “ä[email protected]” is parsed as “[email protected]” with a lonely ‘ä’ in front of it

Legacy editor: off
Base theme: dark

Edit: I realise that it says “Live preview: on” in the System Info, but I took that while in split view with reading mode on the right.
This only appears in reading mode, as I somewhat hinted in the steps to reproduce.

Additional information

Note: in my vault, the behavior is as described. In the preview of this bug report, “ä[email protected]” is not recognized as an email at all.
