Links to notes containing brackets [] are not clickable in edit mode

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a note with a title containing brackets, e.g. “[xyz] Some Title”
  2. Link to that note by writing “[[[xyz] Some Title]”

Expected result

CMD+Click on the link opens the note. Hovering the link renders an underline to indicate that the link is clickable.

Actual result

CMD+Clicking and hovering in edit mode does nothing. In preview mode it works fine.

Thanks, I can repro.

Is this similar bug? Some my links can’t be clicked in the edit mode, but they’re fine in preview mode.

(in edit mode)

(in preview mode)

And they’re clickable when I delete double indentations

@jokysatria no, your looks like a different parsers error in edit mode

Okay, reported Numbered/bullet list with checkbox will make internal link unclickable in the edit mode

this is fixed in 0.13.15
