Auto-linking with double square brackets always creates new page
I tried to use the auto linking feature, where you type the name of page in [[ double square brackets ]].
Page does not exist already: It creates a new page and creates a link to it.
Page already exists: Link is created to existing page
Page does not exist already: Behavior as expected
Page already exists: A new page is created with the same name (wrong)
I.e. if I type 'Please see the list of [[Actions]]', a link to a new page called 'Actions' is created.
However, if I later write 'Remember to check the list of [[Actions]]', it creates a new page called Actions, not linking to the one created in the previous step.
Are my expectations wrong? Should I do something different to link to an existing page?
I have this issue on Windows 10 as well.
Same problem here, and my research indicates it is only happening in the Mac version. Very frustrating.

Same problem here.... always creates a new page in the section.

I have this same incorrect behaviour constantly.
I had this same incorrect behaviour intermittently.
This currently works for me: if the page already exists, link is created to the existing page.
