Subject: Bug: Double colon in org link description breaks the link [9.4.4 (release_9.4.4 @ /Applications/]
Date: Sun, 02 May 2021 15:00:05 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and
what in fact did happen.  You don't know how to make a good report?  See

Your bug report will be posted to the Org mailing list.

In emacs -Q:

1. M-x org-mode
2. insert the following line in the buffer (created by 

- [[][An Orgmode Note 
Workflow :: Rohit Goswami  Reflections]]

3. You can't follow the link using mouse-left because of the "::" in the 
link, which makes that line into an org "description list item". The 
message is "No link found".
