Outline data not being shown after opening a note via an internal link from an unpinned canvas

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Obsidians inner Sandbox vault
  2. Make sure right panel (with Outline, Tags, Links) is not collapsed
  3. Create a new note (named “Test”, for the sake of clarity) and fill it with at least one H1-heading
  4. Close every opened tab
  5. Create a new canvas and add a card object to it. The card should contain an internal link to “Test” note. Like that: “[[Test]]”.
  6. Try to open this inner link [[Test]] via mouse click over a created link in the card.
  7. After note being opened, take a look at Outline menu in a right panel

Expected result

Outline menu should contain information about headings of the being opened and even focused note.

Actual result

Outline actually get info about the being opened document headings, BUT THEN it suddenly, in a matter of 300-400ms, loses any reference to an opened document and afterwards present no info in Outline, as if there was no note opened at all.
