Don’t know if you’re willing to install yet another plugin, but Hover Editor works quite well for this. It displays the rendered markdown and images. You can make quick copies of text or edits. Works in Files, Search, and the new Bookmarks as well.
Thanks for introducing me to Hover Editor. I love it. It’s one of those plugins that gives functionality that I never would have guessed I needed till I tried it! It definitely helps in a number of other places, and it’s very good at its job.
However, I cannot seem to get it to trigger while over a linked mention, like your example shows. I wonder if it’s a setting thing on my end or interference?
I was using Query Control for rendering markdown in Backlinks, Search, etc, but using it with Search isn’t working with Obsidian v.1.2+, so I’ve been using Hover Editor everywhere the past few days. It really is great.
As Hover Editor takes over Settings > Core plugins > Page preview, you might have to play around with both of their settings. My main vault is set to only trigger Page Preview/Hover Editor with hovering and pressing cmd (mac).
