Linked/Unlinked Mentions Running Count First Requires Expanded State

Steps to reproduce

  1. Collapse either your linked or unlinked mention categories in the Backlinks sidebar.
  2. Navigate to a new note that has either linked or unlinked mentions.

Expected result

The Backlinks sidebar to display the correct count of the mentions.

Actual result

The Backlinks sidebar displays no count.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.9.1

Additional information

Given that after re-collapsing the categories they display their respective count of mentions I assume any collapsed state should.

This is not a bug. It’s on purpose optimization. Open a feature request.
