New linked cards can't be created in preview view?

I’m trying to create a link to a card I haven’t created yet which I’ve done several times already. But for some reason, I can’t do that now. It keeps giving me this error: New linked cards can’t be created in preview view. First of all, what is preview view and how do I get out of it so that I can create a new link from this view?

Hi @Iamjmw,

Thanks for reporting this! You have actually found a bug and as such I have moved this post into bug reports.

Preview view is when you single-click on a card title (while it is in display mode) to quickly view it on top of your current view. We use this view to create new linked cards, and currently you cannot create new linked cards from this view (although we will be adding this soon!).

However from your screenshot you aren’t in a preview view, but are editing a card in the Noteboard. Could you let us know which browser / app you are using and on which OS? We will try to replicate this on our end so we can fix it. (Feel free to share that information with us via the in-app ‘Chat with Us’ messenger if you do not want to post it publicly on the forum).

If you log in and out that should temporarily fix it. If you find a way to replicate this bug do let us know. We are working on a permanent fix for this.

Ok, glad I wasn’t going insane, lol.

I am using Safari on macOS 11.4.
