New user here … Might be missing something … Let say I have just created a note called “Bread” … Why does the name “Bread” appear in the pop-up list of potential link-targets. Why would a note link to itself? Should not the name “Bread” be excluded form the pop-up list.

Steps to reproduce

Additional information

You way want to link to a section or a block within the same note.

wouldn’t it be better if you ask these questions in help first instead of bug reports?
