Following internal link from canvas always opens note in edit mode

I’m not sure if this is intended behavior, but I find it highly annoying. Maybe I’m missing something?

Steps to reproduce

  • Create a new note, type some stuff into it
  • Create a new canvas
  • Add a card to the canvas
  • In that card, add a link to the new note
  • Click the link. The note always opens in edit mode, even if you had reading mode on beforehand

Expected result

If the last active mode was reading mode, the note should also open in reading mode.

Actual result

It always opens in edit mode.


Windows 10. I also tried this in a completely fresh vault without anything added to it.

Not a bug.
Opening a note from canvas (or anywhere else) in a new tab, always open the target note in the default editor state.

Ah, I wasn’t aware that opening a note in a new tab behaves differently to opening it in the same tab. Changed the default view to reading view now and all is well!
