First link in footnotes is not properly recognized

the first word in the [[]] is not highlighted and Obsidian prompts me to add a new page for the second word, as it doesn’t exist.


Internal links in footnotes that work fine in preview mode are broken when I navigate to them in edit mode using Crtl + click. ONLY while in edit mode. If footnote includes multiple internal links, only the first link fails.

My system is a bit of a variant on the traditional Zettlekasten, so note names have a date/time stamp at the front, followed by a brief description or ID. All notes are in the same directory and file names have not been changed.

As you can see, in edit mode, the date/time stamp does not display as hyperlink. If I use Ctrl+click then Obsidian takes me to a new blank note using on the latter portions of the file name:
Edit mode:

However, in preview mode, the hyperlink displays and works correctly using the entire file name:

  1. In edit mode, type a footnote
    [^test]: [[this is a note]]

  2. The [[]] link highlight does not include the first word after the [[

  3. Hovering over the [[]] link attempts to preview “is a note]]”

Fixed in 0.7. Let me know if it works for you!

No, this still doesn’t work. I’m on 0.7.3 - Mac OS insider build

Strange, I can reproduce now!
