Why does Obsidian show a space after every link?

Hi everyone,

I’m new to Obsidian, trying to figure out whether I can use it for my RL research.

I’m not sure whether I’m doing something wrong, but when I add a link, Obsidian adds a space after it. It looks like this:


The source code for the above is:

An autocurricum is best exemplified in the [Hide and Seek video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kopoLzvh5jY)([paper](https://arxiv.org/abs/1909.07528)).

Any idea why that’s happening and how I can disable it?

Thanks for your help,
Ram Rachum.

Go to default theme and disable your css snippets. Then, you will see that external links use a symbol after the link (to distinguish external links from backlinks).
In your case it seems that your theme (or any css snippet) interfere in the color of that symbol (using the same color of the background) instead of disable it.
For example, for the “old” editor legacy the follow css works, but I don’t know if with the new editor (version with live preview) it works:

/* remove the arrow */
.external-link {
  background-image: none;
  padding: 0;

Thanks @mnvwvnm. Turns out it was because of high-contrast mode on Windows. I disabled Forced Colors and now it’s fixed.
