More descriptive internal link icon (mobile toolbar)

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Obsidian editor on mobile
  2. Look for an “internal link” icon in the “toolbar”
  3. Not being able to precisely tell at-a-glance which icon is for “internal link”

Expected result

I’d expect the icon to either have broadly known representation (like floppy disk for save, chain for links, etc.) OR to be represented by it’s markdown sequence.

I don’t know if there is a widely known symbol for these, but markdown sequence is a nested pair of square brackets: [[]] and I’d expect to find such icon on the toolbar.

Actual result

Currently used icon (single pair of square brackets) [ ] is IMO confusing because:

  • Precisely this sequence [] means nothing in markdown
  • It’s very close to markdown sequence for a checkbox: - [ ]

I’m mostly used to this now, but it took a while and slowed me slightly in the meantime.
