Links Not Updating After HTML Tag

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create Note A
  2. Create Note B
  3. Link to Note A from Note B
  4. Inside of Note B add a tag in front of the link (it can be on the line above, and with/without a space between, it is not broken with two newlines), tags tested that break feature: iframe, p
  5. Rename Note A

Expected result

When changing the name of Note A, the reference inside of Note B is changed, when the reference is outside of a closing html tag, regardless of spacing

Actual result

The wikilink doesn’t update, and become broken

Additional information

I am on archlinux, using their package in the repository, and have been using Obsidian for a total of 30 min (just installed it)

It correctly updates the link when a span tag is used

If there’s a blank line, a new block, it works fine. Perhaps →

If you look at the obsidian documentation, near the end you’ll see mentioning of how markdown are not supported within html tags, which I believe you’re experiencing here.

This, if I’m not mistaken, is a choice made by the developers, and as such is not a bug, but intended behaviour.
