Unlinked mention section should not update (flash) when editing the current file

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open a file;
  2. Open backlinks pane;
  3. Type in the file;
  4. Wait for 3 seconds after stopping typing.

Expected result

The unlinked mention section should not flash, as it’s distracting.

Actual result

The unlinked mention section flashes.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.8.0

Additional information

Cannot reproduce on Win10 with 0.8.1. Might have to do something with note’s source?

I tried 0.8.1 and the issue still seems to be there.

Oh I forgot to mention that it doesn’t flash on every keypress, but on every save. If you stop typing for 2 seconds, the unlinked mention section would flash.

let me know if you still have this with 0.8.4
