Properties not rendering correctly when using properties for breadcrumbs navigation

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open sandbox vault
  2. Add a property “parent” with type “list”.
  3. In “Vault is just a local folder”, add property parent: “[[Plugins make Obsidian special for you]]”
  4. In “Plugins make Obsidian special for you”, add property parent: “[[Start Here]]”.
  5. Use properties overview on top of file to browse from “Vault is just a local folder” → “Plugins make Obsidian special for you” → “Start here”.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]

Reproducible in sandbox vault.

Expected result

You can navigate through all three files.

Actual result

After switching from “Vault is just a local folder” → “Plugins make Obsidian special for you”, the wrong properties are displayed (it seems to render the parent property from the previous file.)

(I can also reproduce it on a second device with Windows 11)

Additional information

  • If you close and reopen the note, the correct properties are rendered. It only shows wrong property if directly navigated from another file which has the same property.
  • The source view (and/or opening it outside of Obsidian) won’t change so it’s a rendering bug in live view.
  • It only bugs out if the property is type “list” (it seems to work with “text”).

Thanks, this issue has been identified and will be fixed for the next release.
