Clicking on links from Canvas causes backlinks/outlinks of notes to disappear/display incorrectly

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create two notes with links to each other.
  2. Create canvas card that has a link to one of the notes.
  3. Embed one of the notes.
  4. Click the link to go to the original note through canvas card or embedded note.
  5. Look at the backlinks/outgoing links panel.

Expected result

  • Backlinks panel show other notes linking to the active note.
  • Outgoing links panel show links on active note to other notes.

Actual result

  1. It either disappears entirely (shows no backlinks or outgoing links).
  2. Or shows incorrectly.
  • I believe it’s because it points to the note that was embedded as the active note, instead of the note that was opened through the link.
