When creating cross-references to other sections within the note in the following format, [[NoteName#cross-reference | cross-reference]] it works well in obsidian (I click it in Preview, and takes me to the section), but does not work in the exported PDF (the cross-reference is blue and underlined, but the cursor does not turn into a hand, and clicking on them does nothing). It would be great if it worked in PDFs too.
Moreover, hyperlinks in the following format [google](www.google.com) also don’t work in the PDF.
Website links work well in both obsidian and the PDF (cursor turns into a hand, and clicking on them opens the link in my browser).
E.g. In the following note
bla bla bla
Check the [[Untitled#introduction | introduction]] section
All three links are clickable in Obsidian preview mode, but only youtube.com is clickable in the PDF. Can we please have cross-references ([[NoteName#cross-reference | cross-reference]]) and markdown-formatted links ([google](www.google.com)) also work in the PDF?
EDIT: Turns out that the [google](www.google.com) links were not working in the PDF because there must be a bug in the Flatpak version of Obsidian. I am running Obsidian 0.12.15 from AUR now, and [google](www.google.com) links work. Cross-references are not working however
I’m not sure that I fully understand this feature request. Is it that if I have a .pdf file within the vault and it contains a wikilink or some other note referencing mechanism, that the reference should be clickable?
Edit: I’ve just tested a regular link in a PDF and it works. I think I might be referring to an entirely different feature request (if it doesn’t exist already), which is to parse all PDF text in the PDF viewer to search for wikilinks and other friends for obsidian graph traversal. This pertains to ANY PDF, not just what I assume to be PDFs generated from a .md
+1 to feature request.
I can understand that links to other Obsidian Notes don’t work but “internal” links such as Table of Contents, or cross-references are such a basic requirement IMO that they really should be supported. Without this, PDFs for reports/documentation that we create are frustrating: users try clicking on an “obvious” link (color, underline) and nothing happens. Seriously devalues the utility of the document.
