When I have a large graph opened and zoomed in so that nodes are “hidden” behind an adjacent pane, I can actually click on the nodes and navigate to them. I would expect this not to happen. It does not appear to happen with the local graph.
Here is a gif of it.
Apologies, the cursor is offset in the GIF - please take my word for it that I am clicking in the left-hand region of the note pane.
