I use markdown-style links.
I select “text”, press hotkey to “Insert link” (default Ctrl+K) which encloses text to [text]() and places caret between round brackets (paretheses).
After pressing the hotkey, typing does not show any autocomplete/suggestions.
Show suggestions when typing between round brackets matching pattern of markdown styled link [any text](¦), just like suggestions are shown for wiki-style links.
Suggestions in markdown-styled links would solve that issue, at least for those who are OK with markdown style links, including me.
We can specify nonexistent target also for wiki-links.
Meaningfulness of showing suggestions is the same for wiki and markdown links.
Aside, external links now still require scheme, e.g. file:/// which practically disables suggestions.
I also support this. I work in software development and both PyCharm and VSCode have this feature. I love Obsidian but I also miss this feature. For now I open the md file with one of those IDE but it creates stupid hidden folders and I prefer to avoid it.
This would make creating internal links between files and in the same file so much easier. It’s great for thinks like creating indexes at the top of a big file. I use it mostly when building big documentation files for a package so users/readers can jump to specific parts of the file.
