Backlink unlinked mentions view should stay open when selected

Steps to reproduce

Open unlinked mentions right side pane to see unlinked mentions

Expected result

The unlinked mentions pane should stay open when moving between documents.

Actual result

Currently closes when moving to another document resulting in constant opening of the pane when looking through a large collection of documents.

I.e. the state should be persistent until the end user closes it across the whole vault, even possibly after restarting the application.

Additional information

Initially did it because global search used to be a performance hit, now it’s much better.

Fix is included in 0.6.7, going to leave this bug report alone until we release it for insider build. Thanks for catching it!

Feel free to close this one then! One less bug in the world.
