Internal link not working

Hi, I just started using Obsidian. And I’m following this tutorial. But I was stuck at linking notes.


(from 1:15 to 3:05)

Steps to reproduce:
Create a first new note.
Type in anything.
Create a second new note.
Type in [[ and choose the first note to link.
Click on the linked note to open.

Expected result:
Click on the linked note.
The linked note opens.

Actual result:

I clicked on the linked not but it did not open. What did I do wrong?

Operating system: Windows 10 Pro 10.0.18363
Obsidian version: 0.9.6

I haven’t customized anything. I just installed, created a new vault and created two notes as per the tutorial.

Because you’re in edit mode.

  • Either switch to preview (Ctrl-E)
  • Or Ctrl-click your link.

It worked!

Thanks a lot! :smiley:

I got very confused by this as well, i still do not udnerstand what is edit mode

It still is not working for me. I am able to press ‘[’ to create a link, it turns purple, however, ctrl-clicking or pressing ctrl e to leave edit mode did not fix the issue. It does not create a new note from the created internal link.

I’m following this tutorial and having a similar problem. When I code the link, nothing happens. It doesn’t turn purple or become clickable, either in Edit mode or in Preview.

For mac users cmd+E and the link is activated
