Embedding a video and then adding underscores disconnects the notes in graph view

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a note with links to other notes.
  2. Embed a video using ‘center’ and ‘iframe’ HTML.
  3. Add 3 underscores “___” to make a line, right underneath the embedded video.

Expected result

The graph view will show the notes as connected.

Actual result

In the graph view the notes won’t be connected despite the fact that the links are still functional.

Please, attach a copy of file where this happens.

Here is one of the files that this happens with. I think the issue is when the HTML code is right next to underscores it produces this issue.

I can’t reproduce. I can see the outgoing links with the files you sent.


I made this video to better explain it. Does it help?

No it doesn’t help because with the file you sent me the graph works.

That’s weird, I was able to reproduce the bug in a new vault using these notes. Nothing between these and what I sent before should be different.

Note 1.md (8 Bytes)

this file is different. you need to add a blankline after html blocks.
