One workaround, for now, is to pin the note you are working in (with the linked mentions at the bottom). Tapping a linked mention opens a tab/switches tabs, keeping the original note open in a tab (the few times I tried).
When I pin the file with the linked references as mentioned above it keeps the file that is pinned. However, it replaces my other tab that is already open
IE If I have 3 tabs open & I click on the linked references of the pinned file it replaces one of the other opened tabs with the linked reference. In other words it replaces the content of one of the opened tabs that aren’t pinned instead of opening a new tab
Although I could pin each opened tab that does make things a bit counter productive. However, at least it is something. If I didn’t have any other tabs opened this would work great
Thanks for the work around. At least there is an option to make things a little better
