New update is broken or feature removed - creating new note in a note using @


I used to be able to create a new note/object while I’m typing inside a note/object. Now, I can do that only if I don’t use a space in the title. Check how to reproduce section for details…


  1. For example I’m typing something inside an existing note.
  2. Whenever I want to create a new note while inside an existing note, I will just type “@Check this article from” (no quotes) and I will have a pop-up window with the option to create a new object from this.
  3. Now, I will only get that option if I don’t put a space, for example, I will have the option to create a new object if I type “@Checkthisarticlefrom” (no quotes). The moment I put a space between “Check” and “this” the small pop-up window disappears.


Please fix/bring back this feature. We should be able to create a new note/object while typing, and get to it later. This is a real deal breaker


  • OS:
    macOS Ventura 13.1
  • Device:
    MacBook Pro M1 Pro
  • Anytype Version:

BTW, line divider markdown (—) is also not working (dotted divider works) :frowning: who knows what else is broken in this release

:frowning: “/tag” on a new note doesn’t work too. This relation can be added manually through gazillion of clicks.


  • Restarting the app (killed) and my computer - same result
  • Uninstalled the app, fully deleted the working directory, fresh install, and then let it download - same results

Hi @edwin, thanks for taking the time to write this bug report.

To summarize your post: you can create inline Objects with @-mentions, but only if there is no space in the text after the @?

If so, please check-out this topic as I believe your topic is a duplicate of that discussion:

Spaces after “@” when creating new objects - Bug Reports - Anytype Community

If you agree, we can close your topic and we can continue the discussion in the linked topic.

PS: could you please edit your post and remove the Bug Report instructions and pencil icons? :pencil2:

Please stick to one bug report to keep things organized :slight_smile:

I think you are experiencing this bug:

I’m not sure if it was ever the case that you could always add a tag this way. The “Tag” relation is just a relation like any other so you can indeed add it to an Object using /relations > + New relation > Tag (indeed, quite some clicks). You can upvote this feature request as it is requesting a simplified way to add (inline) relations (not just for Tags):

I’ve been using it for long @sambouwer that’s why I know it used to work. I used to be able to use /tag to add the Tag relation in a new note/object (granted that it creates its own block inline).

Now what happens is - I need to add Tag relation up top first, then I can use /tag to add a Tag block inline, or I can do what you said which needs gazillion clicks :frowning:

My hunch is - the devs removed the pre-added Tag relation from all objects (no way for me to verify now). May I please request an installer of old version (0.29.x) ? There are so many bugs in this release it broke my workflow.

Bugs that I haven’t put in yet:

  1. Contents in an inline table gets screwed up after typing them (sometimes the space, line space, format, etc disappears)
  2. Applying format on the contents of a Table is hit or miss (like background sometimes don’t work, Shift+Enter doesn’t work; all of these can be replicated)
  3. Sometimes you can (without issue) and sometimes you cannot delete an object within a table
  4. Occasionally, the App quickly refreshes while typing it undo the last edit

Sorry if it’s a wrong place to comment on that, but I would like to be able to link objects with @ using spaces as well. I have many objects with the similar name like “How to …” and it’s very complicated for me link them with @ because I could only type “How” and have to scroll huge list of objects to find what I need which takes a lot of time. Should I create a separate feature request for this?

could you check whether this FR covers your needs/wishes? If so, you can upvote it so it gets more attention. if not, please create a new feature request :slight_smile:


Hi @edwin sorry for the (super) late reply!

I agree that tagging should not be cumbersome and get in the way of your flow. I think there are already many suggestions for improvements on the forum, and I believe that there is a separate project running at Anytype to overhaul how Tags work within Anytype. @ignatovv is there anything you can say about that? We should update the list of Tag related issues and requests in this topic as you already suggested.

@edwin could you create separate bug reports for the simple table issues you mentioned? I can’t find any existing bug reports that describe your issue(s).

Thanks, I created a new feature request.


@edwin as a feature request has been created to accommodate for the removed feature (space in title of @ mention) the core of you bug report would be taken care of. Could you create separate bug reports or feature requests for the other topics you mentioned?
