Was about to create a bug report when I found this thread.
In the edit mode, links behave differently depending on how you format them:
[[link]] -> gets an underline on mouseover + works with
[link](link.md) -> does not get an underline on mouseover + does not work with
Problem is: at least for me (Mac) all links created with the autocomplete helper (the list of already existing pages) uses the second notation, which is not working as expected.
Sure, I could just use
[[link]] by ignoring the helper and manually typing each character as @ryanjamurphy mentioned, but that totally deprives me of the benefits of the helper, which is obviously helpful when linking to pages with long names.
It’s easy to use
[[page]] and ignore the helper, not so much when linking to
PS: strangely enough, the autocomplete helper does not work in this faulty way when I try to edit the default Obsidian help docs. It always uses
[[link]] instead of
Why is that? It’s driving me crazy
