Hi, I have downloaded Obsidian to play around people with and watched the first Milo video. My issue is that when I type the double bracket the word goes blue as if there is a link but it doesn’t do anything. When I click it, it doesn’t create a new note and if I do creat a new note with the highlighted word it doesn’t link. If I’m doing something wrong I have no idea what it is as I thought it was supposed to work automatically? Any advice?
If you are using Obsidian on the Mac (and not the iOS/iPadOS TestFlight beta), press and hold Command and then click on the link in brackets to jump to that note (if the file has already been created) or to create a new note (if the file hasn’t already been created). Alternatively, if you click the monitor icon in the top-right corner to switch into Preview mode, you can just click on any link to jump to/create that file.
Command-click doesn’t yet appear to work on iPadOS (with an external keyboard and trackpad), unfortunately.
Ah, many thanks. I guessed there was something else that I should be doing but didn’t know what! I don’t recall Nick Milo mentioning that in his video but may have missed it. Thanks again.
If you are trying to get IOS to do this, and have an external keyboard, try to hold OPTION+COMMAND and then CLICK the highlighted link in the preview version of the note. I think it works for me using a BRYDGE keyboard
