~ Home path not linkable

Steps to reproduce

Start a new link with [My new link](~/test.txt). This should link to test.txt in my home folder. Instead the link doesn’t work at all.

Expected result

I would expect the link to work.

Actual result

Instead I get an error no such file or directory as I think it believes it to be a relative link.

At the moment we deal with files relative to the vault position.
This is more a feature request.
