This was originally written as a feature request for Obsidian core, but perhaps would be better as a plugin.
In brief: Obsidian users care about note relationships almost as much as we care about note content. Links are central to Obsidian’s value. So it would make sense to give outgoing/forward links the same UI status as incoming/backlinks.
Idea: make a better ‘links pane’ (to replace the current ‘backlinks pane’) that lists both incoming and outgoing links in sortable, collapsible lists. Think of it as a more readable, sortable list version of the Local Graph.
