Graph view cannot properly render note that links to itself

Steps to reproduce

Create a note. Add a header to it if you wish. In this note, define a link to itself, optionally to a header in the note (doesn’t matter).
Bring up graph view.

Expected result

The node representing the note should have a link pointing to itself.

Actual result

The node is rendered with no link.

Additional information

In terms of priority, I find this bug to be egregious. The graph view needs to be accurate. It’s not outside the realm of possibility for a note to have a link to another place in itself.

Of course there can be links within a note.

Whether self-links should appear in the graph is another story. I don’t see this as a bug. Please, feel free to open a feature request and we’ll think about it.

So it’s ok that the graph doesn’t reflect a note having a link to itself?

yes, I believe it’s ok the graph doesn’t reflect a note having a link to itself. Open a feature request so we can also gather some feedback from the community.

Will do, and thank you for such a prompt response.
