I have decided to write a bug report for this, because I believe it is more of a bug than a feature request. However there is this feature request related to this bug: Make "Follow link under cursor" hotkey work for external links
Please add your support to that feature request. This is not a bug.
I have. I still think it’s a bug. Markdown links are a core feature of Obsidian, as is follow link under cursor. They don’t work together. Two features not working together is a bug, right?
Maybe by some interpretations. The way we use Bug Reports is to refer to glitches, errors, and issues in things that have been implemented, not to capture things that have not been implemented.
Put another way: a thing can’t be both a bug report and a feature request. This causes clutter and redundancy.
Thanks for the clarification.
I consolidated some releated requests:
