Things I have tried
I’m a relative newbie - I’ve experimented with dropdown (select + option tags) but have found when trying to reference, I suppose, "obisidian links ( + () or []) they don’t render correctly. Almost as if the (what I call) html tags don’t mix well with the markdown/obisidian format. In the end I’ve converted all to html tags, but it’s all messy and hard to read as well as any backlinks needing to href to actual folder directories which adds overhead.
What I’m trying to do
I’m just trying to make a “to do” (simplest way of putting it) where I can add a priority number, 1 to 3, to the beginning, then a checkbox, then task, which may include a backlink. so eg. 1 [X] Create Documentation - Per [[Templates#docs |Document Templates]]
What has caught me most by surprise is, initially when I had the drop down and checkbox (both html) then normal markdown per the above, the live preview rendered it completely fine, but when on reading view, it was totally different and the obisidian formatting didn’t work.
Apologies for the newbie question.
