Error - The markup provided is not valid link markup - when trying to add a link to a wiki page

This feature was working. When I try to insert a link to another wiki page (Insert, Advanced), I type [ and automatically get The markup provided is not valid link markup.

No matter what I type after the [ symbol or even if I type a word (of a page title I know exists) and press Control+Shift+K, nothing happens.

Is there something in Confluence that I removed or changed by accident to cause this problem now.

Hello Lorettar,

What version of Confluence are you using? We are going to need that in order to try to replicate this behavior.

4.3.2 - Not sure if it is related, but I had two plugins from Bob Swift Software - Excel Plugin and Table Sorter Library. I installed them and did not like them so I disabled. That is only thing I am aware of, that changed in Confluence. Thanks.

I'm having this issue. Confluence 5.7

This can be caused by a leading space in the markup string (i.e., a space before a document name to which you wish to link).
