Support markdown in canvas link text

(Copied from Canvas link text doesn't support markdown)

Use case or problem

Sometimes I want to use links and formatting inside the link text between canvas nodes. However, the link text is plain text, not markdown.

One specific application: I’m trying to make a canvas with all of my bank / brokerage accounts as nodes, where the arrow text links to a note describing the cheapest process for moving money between them.

If you:

  • Create a link between two cards in a canvas
  • Double click the link to edit the link text
  • Try writing a markdown link

Then it looks like this:

Proposed solution

It would be nice to make canvas link text a markdown field
