Use case or problem
I enter all my notes in the Daily Notes section, tagging keywords as I go. When I click on a keyword, I get that keyword’s page and all the content from when I referenced it is listed for me. But, none of the markdown in those references is rendered, so instead of seeing nice images and links, I see raw md (I hope I’m using the term ‘render’ correctly here). This basically defeats the purpose of taking notes in this way (which is the way I thought all these new unstructured note apps are supposed to work).
In Remnote and Logseq, the markdown is indeed rendered in the references area. See attachment showing the comparison.
Add a setting toggle to enable rendering markdown in the reference areas. It can default to ‘off’ so that nothing changes unless you go enable it.

I was wondering if there is a way to show backlinks (linked mentions) not as markdown source code but as interpreted markdown?
What I’m trying to do
Hi all. I love Obsidian for so many reasons, but there’s a feature that is inherent in Roam or Logseq that I can’t recreate here, but maybe someone here would have an idea:
In my work, I have regular 1:1 meetings with people on a weekly basis (same people every week). In Logseq, I can go to my daily note and then sum up my meetings like so:
notes notes notes notes notes
more notes and some to-do’s etc.
and then, when I go to Dude one’s page, I se…
And the currently proposed solution a “beta” plugin — which I didn’t know was a thing — Obsidian-Query-Control:
Let’s go to the topic directly.
The built-in query and research function is very powerful for text searching. However, the search results returned are just plain texts. And I think many people would prefer a result looks similar to the live preview mode. And I kept wondering why there is no such a core plugin or 3-rd party plugin that can do this.
Accidentally, I red this post and found that there is a plugin, but is experimental, that can do this job:
A very cool example of the use case is…
All that said, I support this feature request — it would be a lot easier if Obsidian core simply rendered markdown in Linked Mentions and other query-based views, instead of plain text.
Looks like this feature request is also the same:
A setting to display search results and backlinks in preview mode will make these more clean.
