Internal Document Links Contribute to Node Size in Graph

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new file.
  2. Create multiple internal links using either the [[#section-name]] or [title](#section-name) syntax.
  3. Go to the graph view.

Expected result

The size of the node on the graph view should reflect only connections between nodes, and not all links referring to that node.

Actual result

The size of the node is relative to all links relating to that node, not just the external ones. This means that a file with lots of internal links is displayed incongruously as a massive node in the graph.

Additional information

This screenshot should illustrate the issue. The “Rust Style Guide” file has a table of contents in it containing 22 links that are purely internal to the document



Just an update to say that this is still present in 0.7.0!

Looks fixed as of 0.8.4. Please let me know otherwise! :smile:

Never mind, it’s still broken, once I added normal links in addition to heading ilnks. Moving it back!

should be fixed in 0.8.6
