Outline plugin should include headers from embedded markdown files

Use case or problem

I have many short markdown files that in embed in an ‘overview’ file using ![[child-file]]. The outline plugin does not show any headers for the embedded files, only of the overview file. This makes the overview file significantly harder to navigate.

Proposed solution

The outline plugin should include headers from embedded markdown files and function as if they were part of the ‘host’ file (i.e. clicking on it scrolls to the header).

Thanks!

Very cool. Not to sidetrack this, but perhaps to even take Folding Embedded/Transcluded Notes and allow for more than just folding of the entire embed, but instead also the headings and lists within. This would pair very nicely with your excellent request.

Good idea.

Thanks.

This could definitely be good. I tend to embed either large files, with lots of headings, or embed headings themselves, which then get cluttered enough that I usually just disable the outliner.
