Links in Inline Footnote in new Live Preview broken

Steps to reproduce

  1. Add an inline footnote by using text^[footnote text]
  2. Add internal link to footnote text^[footnote [[cool link]] text]
  3. New editor live preview highlighting breaks, see screenshot

Expected result

The entire footnote should be highlighted (blue in my theme) and the link should be underlined and clickable (when holding ctrl). for this screenshot I just removed the actual link brackets

Actual result

Here you can see the internal link shows the opening brackets, but not the closing brackets and after the link the footnote stops being highlighted.

Additional information

Haven’t tested with manual footnotes inserted at the bottom, I barely use them because they’re a bit inconvenient.
It’s important to note that this is just an issue in the live preview, rendering the thing readonly in reading mode correctly highlights the link and takes the entire thing as footnote.

This issue also occurs with the default obsidian theme, not just my custom community one and I highly doubt any of the plugins interfere here.

Please, search before posting.
