I’m trying to copy and paste code snippets and obsidian keeps changing special characters
I’m new to markdown based software so apologies if this is a basic question but im having a ton of trouble with code snippets, especially the character “%”.
using v0.12.3 on windows but also any version released from 5/08/2021 because i’ve had this issue since
as an example I have this templater snippet
copying from the web gives me this result:
copying from another note or the same note gives me this result:
for some reason if I type in something like “100%” and copy and paste that the result is as expected, it returns “100%”. I dont understand why “<%tp.file.title%>” is turning into a link when pasted? is it the dots? even things that aren’t templater commands will return a link
<%yo.whats.happening%> turns into (%3C%yo.whats.happening%%3E)
ctrl + v & ctrl + shift + v return the same result.
I’ve tried doing it from right click, and tried toggling auto-convert to html on and off. those are all the things I’ve tried from what I can see from any similar posts on the forums.
I’ve seen videos of people using obsidian and they seem to be able to copy and paste % and links with no issues. I really don’t understand what I’m doing wrong or if this is intended behavior and I’m just ignorant about it
