Web image embed resize (using alt text) not working in Reading View

Steps to reproduce

  • copy any web-based image url and paste using markdown link format. here’s a sample https://forum.obsidian.md/uploads/default/original/3X/2/6/26fd792a2dd1412e4c0e4cd6868911aa4ba3654e.png
  • replace the alt text with a number to resize the picture e.g. ![400](https://forum.obsidian.md/uploads/default/original/3X/2/6/26fd792a2dd1412e4c0e4cd6868911aa4ba3654e.png)
  • observe the image size in Live Preview (obey the sizing) vs Reading View (ignore the sizing)

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Yes]

Expected result

The image resizing should apply to Reading View as well. I put a size 400 but it’s only applied to Live Preview.

Actual result

Image resizing did not apply to Reading View. On related note, I tested on different scenarios i.e.

  • web image using markdown link ![400](https://forum.obsidian.md/uploads/default/original/3X/2/6/26fd792a2dd1412e4c0e4cd6868911aa4ba3654e.png)
  • local image using wikilink ![[Pasted image 20230611180457.png|400]]
  • local image using markdown link ![400](Pasted%20image%2020230611180457.png)

and here is the resultant html – we can see that web image using markdown link doesn’t capture width in Reading View (but it does in Live Preview)

Additional information

this seems to be somewhat related but i’m not sure

here’s additional information. putting an alt text and width number i.e. [caption|200](web/url/image.jpg) renders the image width properly both in editing and reading view. the bug seems to affect reading view when u only declare the width number i.e. [200](web/url/image.jpg)
