Footnote link moves to a different note

Steps to reproduce

Have two open notes (in preview mode) that contain a footnote.
On one of the notes (I’m not entirely sure which, I think that it’s the last one that was opened) click on the footnote link [1] .

Expected result

Move to the footnote section of the same note.

Actual result

Moves to the [1] footnote section of the other note.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.7.3

Additional information

The “return” link to the footnote’s reference doesn’t work either.

On the Help Vault, with an extra note I created just to test the footnote.

EDIT: Changed to an example in a Vault with the default css.

please, submit the bug report with default css.

Does it happen with default css?

Yes, I had taken that GIF because that was the first time I managed to understand when it happens. But on my Vault I don’t use Custom CSS and it happens. I’ll edit above to add an example with default css.

Edit: Changed the example to be with default css, should have made that in the first place… my apologies.

Thank you. I can reproduce. It seems that the footnotes point to the first open window going left to right.

Should be fixed in 0.7.5. Let me know if it works.
