Link Heading Drop Down List Limited To First 100 Headings

There appears to be a hard coded limit of 100 headings in the link heading drop down. I’m not sure if this is by design or if this is a bug. The help file does not mention it.

You can manually enter the link heading and it works as expected.

If this number was intentional, maybe this number could be an option that defaults to 100 but can be changed.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create file1, then add 2 lines like this:

    ## test line
    - test line
  2. copy/paste and repeat 104 more times

  3. Create file2, then in file2 do the usual [[file1# to see the heading list drop down and count the number of available entries

Expected result

I expect that I would see 105 items in the list

Actual result

I only see the first 100 items

  • Obsidian version: 0.10.1

This is intentional. You can continue typing to narrow down list.

The popup display is meant to aid you in the search not to show an exaustive list of options.
