The org-mode documentation says that
Once a link in the buffer is complete, with all brackets present, Org changes the display so that ‘DESCRIPTION’ is displayed instead of ‘[[LINK][DESCRIPTION]]’ and ‘LINK’ is displayed instead of ‘[[LINK]]’.
If I type
When I finish the final bracket and press
SPC, indeed the links shortens to only show the word
website. This is what I want.
However, if I type
This does not shorten. It always displays in the raw as above. If I put my cursor over
test and press
ENTER, a new window opens with that (existent) file opened.
How can I make the file link behavior mirror that of a website?
EDIT: I highlighted an entire link and ran
font-lock-studio-region, which output a 200 line file. One thing I noticed is a line that says
org-activate-links (0 nil)
I wonder if that has something to do with it. The whole file can be found at https://pastebin.com/REzWfG53
