Footnotes not working properly in 0.8.5

Steps to reproduce

In Edit mode add some text^[footnote text]
Cmd+E to go to Preview
There will be a number, like text1
Click on the number, nothing happens.

Expected result

By clicking on the number the cursor should jump to the footnote at the bottom of the page. The footnote IS there, so that bit works.

Actual result

The number in the text is not clickable.


  • Operating system: macOS 10.14.6
  • Obsidian version: 0.8.5

Additional information

To reduce the font size of the footnote, this code does not work anymore:

.footnote-link.mod-highlighted {
  background-color: fuchsia;
  color: black;

.footnotes-list {
    font-size: 13px

we changed markdown engine in 0.8.5.
We’ll look into the footnote issue.

We don’t provide support nor promise that we maintain the css attributes at this point.

will be fixed in 0.8.6.

@WhiteNoise: Licat said it is fixed so this one can go to the bug graveyard.
