Graph View between two Notes

Have the ability to select two notes and graph view will show all the different pathways between those two notes. Gives you the ability to potentially see the different ways two notes are connected.

Is this really a query based feature like this other post To filter the graph view

In theory of that feature was added you could create a query that included your two notes and then see the number of connections they have and the number of steps out from the note you want to go.

That wouldn’t work because the query feature described there doesn’t guarantee the display of all middle notes. It would just bring up the two notes.

But if you could filter the number of steps out from the selected note then you would see the notes connected between…right?

You know how all the branches highlight when you hover over a node in Graph View… I’m imagining a shortcut key like Alt-click that allows you to select the node without it clicking thorugh to open the page. It simply turns on the highlights on all of its branches. And if you Alt-click more than one node any branch path that has continuity between the two are highlighted in a contrasting color.

Alternatively, a checkbox somewhere in the UI could be ticked to turn off click-through mode and go into Graph Interaction mode. It would be cool to grab nodes of interest and drag them around and watch how everything rebalances around the adjustment.

Another alternative that addresses this feature request and would work with the other Graph Filter feature requests would be an option to simply color the filter results differently rather than hide everything that doesn’t fit the filter.

@curtismchale I think the issue is you wouldn’t necessarily know how many steps are inbetween a note though? I guess you could just keep increasing the number of steps until you see all the nodes? (that would get annoying though, unless you just by default put in a high number of steps)
