Wrongly thought of as a link

Steps to reproduce

Create the following markdown

[my newly created link](linkidentifier)

[linkidentifier]: https://my.actual.link.com

Obsidian identifies (linkidentifier) as an obsidian link meaning it will show up in the graph as an empty node. And if you click on it will take you to an empty page.

Expected result

It shouldn’t be treated as an obsidian link. It should either not work, or when clicked on should take you to the actual link.

Actual result

Opens a new empty page in obsidian.

  • Obsidian version: 0.12.5

Square brackets for reference-style links, perhaps? This seems to work, I think:

[my newly created link][linkidentifier]
[linkidentifier]: https://my.actual.link.com
