For certain pages, like the daily notes, none of my useful content is actually in the page itself. I link to the daily notes from every page that I work on that day, so the backlinks are really where all of the action is! I’d love a way to quickly look through the backlinks for the page without having to open the page and then open the backlinks.
Hover over a page ref while holding the option key to see the backlinks for that page in a preview window.
Current workaround (optional)
Manually opening the page and then looking at the backlinks.
Yes, please! I was gonna post a feature request for this, and I’m glad one already exists.
This would be especially useful for pages that have not been created (yet). Their preview currently just offers a button to create the page, but a list of backlinks could significantly improve navigation without having to create dummy notes.
I would argue that this should not be hidden behind a special modifier key, but rather be an integral part of page previews. The popup could have a backlink icon (beside the currenlty existing link icon) to switch/scroll to the list of backlinks.
