Properties have a property name and value. The current behavior is that whenever you want to both reference a page in the value, and add additional plain text, the plain text is going to be linked automatically.
Let’s assume the following fictional use case: You want to document information about your customers - for example, what their title is or where they are located.
For this, you create a page with page properties:
tags:: customer role:: Sr. [[Research Consultant]] location:: [[New York City]] - close to Central Park
The idea here is that you do not want to link the full title (including
Sr.) so you are able to quickly see - or query - who of your contacts are “Research Consultants”, no matter whether Senior or Junior. For the location you want to add some additional information that should not appear on the “New York City” page as it is specific to this person.
However, the result is going to be the following:
All items, separated by comma or after a linked page, are going to be linked.
- Do not add this additional information to the properties but in plain text below the property block (disadvantage: Cannot be queried, different formatting)
- Add a second property with the additional plain text information only (disadvantage: separates related information)
The feature request is to allow a mix of both (auto-)linked references and plain text within the same property. The syntax could be like this:
location:: [[New York City]]" - close to Central Park"
