Workflow to Search/Filter/Query Backlinks with Aliases

Hi, before the properties update, I used to be able to search something like “[[Abraham Lincoln]]” which would not include just “Abraham Lincoln” text in other files, but only generate the backlink results. But now with the properties update I can’t do this anymore (not sure why).

Any thoughts on how to search/filter/query backlinks, but not include the same unlinked text?

Also, does it work with Aliases? So would it also find the [[Lincoln]] backlink if I had that setup as an alias under Abraham Lincoln?

For the record, I love the properties update. Thanks Obsidian team!
