Latex Doesn't Render in Link Text

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create two items
  2. Create a link from the first to the second, and put Latex in the link text

For example, this is a screenshot of the actual link with link text

Expected result

I expect the Latex to be rendered.

In the above example, I expect the first bullet’s link to show up as “π link” rather than “$$\pi link$$”.

Actual result

It actually leaves the Latex unrendered in the link.

For example, given the above screenshot, when you click out of the line to see it rendered, it looks like this:


Which operating system are you using?

  • MacOS Big Sur Version 11.4

Which browser are you using?

  • Chrome Version 91.0.4472.114 (Official Build) (x86_64)

If you’re using a desktop or mobile app, what’s the version number of Dynalist?

  • 1.4.9

Are you using any third-party scripts for Dynalist, e.g. PowerPack?

  • No

Hmm yeah, the link’s display text currently isn’t extensively parsed so a lot of formatting don’t work in there. I’m not sure how difficult it’d be to make that the case because then there’d be a lot of edge cases like nesting order and stuff. We will see how feasible this is to implement, thank you for the report!
