I can’t reproduce On Ubuntu. POst a screen recording of this happening in the help vault on.

OK, this is weird:
i can’t repro in the help vault, so maybe it’s related to my vault and/or to my local settings.

i’ll continue to investigate

Hey, I’ve just stumbled upon this behaviour after this recent update on MacOS. For what it’s worths, in my case this happens when “Backlinks in document” community plugin (version 0.0.5) is enabled. Do you have installed?

Yes, this is it, i deactivated “Backlinks in document” and now the editor is working as intended.

Thanks a lot
