Hyperlinks to other Obsidian notes not working if there is a space in the note name

Steps to reproduce

Create a hyperlink using an anchor word, to another Obsidian note which has a title with two words.
Eg. Bob Brown went to see his [mother](Agnes Brown)

Click to follow the link.

Expected result

I would expect to be directed to my note titled ‘Agnes Brown’.

Actual result

In Live Preview mode, clicking the link will create a new note called simply ‘Agnes’.’

In Preview mode, the hyperlink won’t even show up as a hyperlink. It just shows up as dead text: “Bob Brown went to see his [mother](Agnes Brown).”
