Wikilink cannot be inserted by mouse clicking

Steps to reproduce

  1. open a new note
  2. input [[]] to invoke the context menu for backlink insertion
  3. select one of the item, by mouse clicking rather than using keyboard (arrow key and enter key)

Expected result

the selected item should be inserted in-between the โ€œ[[โ€ and โ€œ]]โ€

Actual result

Nothing happened.

Just wanted to let you know that this was discussed in the Discord server and Licat said, โ€œI just fixed a few hours ago,โ€ so I assume it will be fixed in the next insider release :smiley:

I have the same Problem - pls fix it soon.
But thx for the hint reguarding keybord usage which is like salvation :wink:

This has been reported before, please search before posting.

You are welcome :smiley:
Take it as the little help from another patient who is suffering the same pain.

Getting the same. Fingers crossed for latest update, when it comes.
Many thanks

I start typing an already existing backlink; the list appears, but it does not work when I click the link on the list, as it used to in previous versions. I have to fill the backlink manually. Any advice?

@mushotoku and @DG713โ€”just wanted to make sure you guys know that it will be fixed in 0.11.8! :grin:

Thanks! Looking forward to it
