Spell Check Wikilinks

Use case or problem

I’m trying to ensure correct spelling, specifically in Obsidian’s “alternate text” pipe function of wikilinks (e.g. [[Note Name | Mispelled Werds]].

Although I do feel that all text within a wikilink should be spell checked.

Proposed solution

Extend the spell checker’s functionality to wikilinks.

Current workaround (optional)

  1. Type the text somewhere in the body of the note to verify that the spelling is correct.
  2. Copy the text into the wikilink’s alternate text.

Additional Information

I believe I noticed that sometimes Obsidian does spell check within a wikilink. I couldn’t quite determine what was the criteria for if it would or not was. It’s possible that it may have been an error on my part & it never did spell check any wikilinks.
