Moving Outline pane from sidebar to main area breaks link

Steps to reproduce

Open an Outline pane for a note. It is linked to the note.
Move the Outline pane to the sidebar and then move it back to the main area.

Expected result

The Outline pane will stay linked to the note.

Actual result

The link between the note and Outline pane is removed when moving from sidebar to main area.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.8.7

Additional information

The Backlink pane maintains the note link when moving in and out of the sidebar so I would expect the Outline pane to do the same.

is this fixed?

Hmm, well, yes, the Outline pane retains its linkage, but the link icon isn’t there.

I don’t think there should be a link. Becuse that pane is now linked to whatever is in focus.
