Canvas - Connecting group to existing card

Steps to reproduce

Create a Canvas. Create a group. Create a card and place it inside the group. Attempt to connect the group to the existing card. It does not work.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

A connection between a connection node of the group and a connection node of the card with the origin of the connection pointing inwards.

Actual result

Obsidian cannot detect a connection point of the card when it’s inside of the group. Attempting to make a connection just prompts the user to create a new card.

If making a connection between the group and card when the card is outside of the group, the arrow from the group first goes out and then loops back in.
