Link in Presentation mode navigate to blank screen with no way out

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create note with title and a hyperlink in body
  2. Start presentation
  3. Click the link

Expected result

Open the link in browser.

Actual result

Obsidian screen becomes blank in a stuck state, with no button to navigate out or go back. Other than a hidden CMD + left arrow key.


  • Operating system: OS X
  • Obsidian version: v0.6.7
  • Using custom CSS: No.

Additional information

It would also be great if there is a command in omnibox to start/exit presentation mode. Thanks!

Same in v0.7.4 on Windows 10. Only way out is to close Obsidian.

Update : When click the link, it ask to open link with other app.

Operating system : Windows 10
Obsidian version : 0.8.14

P.S. : The color of the link and the checkbox is blue, not purple as in the preview mode (I use original theme of Obsidian). I expect they are purple for consistency. Should I make a new report for this?

Wikilinks are not supported in slides.

The slides use a different styling so the color is
not a bug either.
