Make it possible to click in deep links and scroll to the position of a linked text when the PDF is already open

Use case or problem

The Obsidian team recently added support for deep linking in PDFs, which is great. However, the way this feature is currently implemented makes it necessary to open a new instance of a PDF file everytime I click in a deep link, which I think is a flaw. I believe it’d be more reasonable if there was a possibility to scroll to the text related to the link if the document is already open.

Proposed solution

Try to “mimic” the feature from LiquidText:
