Outgoing links panel: Unlinked mentions can't be clicked through

Steps to reproduce

Open the “outgoing links” panel for any page that has outgoing unlinked mentions. Click on any of the unlinked mentions.

Expected result

As with the backlinks panel, there should be an option to click on the unlinked mention in order to open the corresponding page.

Actual result

The only clickable option is to turn the unlinked mention into a link.


  • Operating system: Windows
  • Obsidian version: v0.12.9

Additional information

In the backlinks panel, under unlinked mentions, note titles are included and can be clicked on. Whereas in the outgoing links panel, under unlinked mentions, note titles are not included.

This was changed from a bug report to a feature request by a moderator. Granted, it isn’t technically a bug, so I’m sorry for mischaracterizing it initially. That being said, my guess is that the functionality I’m describing wouldn’t really constitute a new feature per se, but would would simply be completing the implementation of outgoing unlinked mentions functionality. Am I misunderstanding?

(The original discussion of this topic can be found under the original feature request that I made. That discussion has now been closed, since the feature was implemented.)
