Steps to reproduce
Open an unlinked backlink pane for a note, pin it, and open one of the notes listed in the backlink pane.
I expect the backlink pane would not change.
The backlink pane changes to the note that was opened.
- Operating system: Windows 10
This happens whether the pane is in the sidebar or main area.
I have seen this happening. When the backlink pane gets orphaned, it reverts to the state of being a backlink pane for whatever is in focus.
Is it a bug or do we want to change this behaviour?
Well for my use case, I wanted the backlink pane to be static so I could review each of the backlinked notes without needing to have the original note open. As a workaround, I did a search for the note link.
I think it’s very useful for the backlink pane (or graph or outline or future plugins) to have a static state without keeping the original linked note open, which takes up unnecessary screen space.
This is another design decision to be finalized.
