Not sure if this is a bug or I’m just missing something, but I cannot for the life of me get the link alias shortcut key aka
| to work when I’m creating a link. What I’m doing:
[[catsto get a dropdown of possible matching notes in the vault ie.
cats are cool,
cats are furry,
my all-time favorite cats,
cat jokes, etc
- Using the cursor keys to highlight the note I want to link to (let’s say
|(shift backslahs) to select the note and create the link and start typing alias text
I’m expecting to get the text
[[cat jokes|]] in the note with the cursor sitting just after the pipe, ready for me to type an alias for the link but what I actually get is:
Not very useful; the note I want to link to isn’t there and anything further just makes it worse. I’m expecting it to work the same as the
^ keys, but it isn’t.
I can’t find a bug report on this, so I’m expecting that I’m missing something/doing something silly. Who would like to set me straight?
