Hi all! I’ve just started using Obsidian and have a question about the backlinks pane. If I click the “backlinks” in the status bar where I can also find word count, it used to be that the backlink pane opens under the current notes and if I click the “backlinks” in the status bar again, the pane disappears.
But now, for some reason if I click the “backlinks” in the status bar, it opens instead the right sidebar and if I click the "backlinks"again, nothing happens. In order to close the sidebar, I need to click the sidebar icon on the right upper corner.
I find it a bit annoying. I much prefer that my backlinks show up at the end of my current note instead of showing up on the right sidebar. I would appreciate it if anyone lets me know how I can use the backlink pane as before. Thanks a lot!
I reckon you’ve got the core plugin Backlinks enabled, since you’re seeing this at all. Now there is also an extra option which you could enable, and that is Settings > Backlinks > Backlink in document, which often is disabled. But you can enable this again.
Now you can enable/disable the backlinks at the end of the document from the tab menu in the upper right, like shown in the image below:
I’m not sure if this ever has been possible to toggle from the status bar, but this setting and the tab menu is at least there to play around with.
