Additional information

I asked this question in Discord but haven’t found a solution yet.

works for me. Post a screen recording of this happening in the help vault.

It works in the Help Vault, but not on my personal Vault:

I found the cause of the problem: I have a note whose title is “Constructor” (I’m building a conceptual map, and “constructor” is one of the concepts that I created), its mere presence in my vault causes the “outgoing links” plugin to crash.

I reproduced this in the Help Vault:


Does anyone know WHY the presence of a file called “Constructor” causes this issue?

wow that is funny buggy. we’ll fix it.

I noticed something else: the same problem occurs when the note has an alias called “constructor”.
