Embed linked mention in a note along with preview of the section

My daily notes workflow

I use daily notes to rapidly log thoughts that come during the day. At the end of the day, I add links to relevant topics (MOOCs) in these notes.
e.g. on a particular day, I might have made notes about a person or about a topic etc all in the daily notes. I would tag (add a link) a particular section in the daily note with that person, some other section with the topic moc etc.

This allows me to quickly look at backlinks while reading a particular topic and see any notes (along with the preview) that I might have made on that topic which are sitting in my daily notes. Previews in the pane help greatly since they give quick context.

What I’m trying to do

I want to have the links in the main body of the note along with the preview. I essentially want everything that is shown on the “Linked Mentions” tab to be embedded in the main note.

Things I have tried

  1. dataview query, but this gives only the name of the file and not the preview.
list from [[]]
sort file.name asc
  1. The toggle of showcasing the linked mentions within a note does not solve the problem because:- a) I want it only for specific notes and not all the notes. b) I want to include only the links from daily notes and not my complete vault. Other than the above problems, it solves for my use case perfectly.

  2. I tried using embedded search, however, could not find the right query to search for identifying backlinks to the current file.

Have you found a solution? I’m looking to get the exact same capability. Basically displaying Linked mentions inside some specific notes.

Apologies for the late reply. No, I was not able to figure out how to do it. I just use the toggle for now (Option 2) above.
