Templater Hotkey will work on Note but not on Canvas

What I’m trying to do

I have a shortcut for the multiplication symbol, “$\times$”, where I press ctrl + shift + x and the symbol is pasted from a note which is linked using templater. This works for notes, this does not work when pasting into a canvas bubble.

The error that show up on canvas is: “no active editor: can’t append templates.”

I’ve experienced that every now and then, and I don’t think there is a way around it using Templater. However, you could consider using QuickAdd to achieve the same kind of insertion, or some other plugin which could work in the Canvas.

Or you’ll need to raise a feature request on the Github page for Templater to make it recognise the Canvas as a proper active editor. I’m assuming you’ve upgraded your Templater to the latest version, and that this is still happening. I’ve not tested this myself.
