Linked mentions show less content than unlinked mentions

If you have a link inside a list, the backlink will only display the link itself. But if it is an unlinked mention the list points surrounding the unlinked mention get also displayed.

There does not seem to be an option to display the surrounding list elements for linked mentions as well

Steps to reproduce

  1. mention a page without linking from within a list
  2. go to the mentioned page
  3. one sees the surrounding list elements
  4. press link button to turn into linked mention
  5. the surrounding elements disappear


  • Operating system: macos 10.15.6
  • Obsidian version: v0.8.2

we will rework that the backlinks pane in 0.8.4\0.8.5
