Hide aliases circles in Graph View

If not by default, it would be good to have an option to hide them.
It makes no sense to me showing them as different circles once they are just another way of naming the original ones.

Thanks!! :slightly_smiling_face:

+1. The graph can very quickly get cluttered if you’re trying to maintain a hierarchy in your notes, and are hiding the path using aliases. Like @mydogiscooler says, it would be good to have a toggle to remove empty aliases from the graph.

I’d also really appreciate an option to hide these empty aliases. I personally use them mostly for abbreviations for long titles to easier reference these pages in other notes (e.g. CMS) and it’s kind of distracting and useless to have them shown as separate pages.

I’d like to bump this feature request.
I just don’t see how, for example, “Albert Einstein” and “Einstein” would constitute two separate nodes on the graph.
As a side note, this isn’t the first time I’ve come to this forum looking for progress on this idea, but this is the first time I’ve seen this specific post.
I’ve tried checking the Roadmap on the LogSeq website, but is there anywhere else that the list of planned features is being maintained?
Or is there a pause on new features while LogSeq gears up for a v1.0 release?

I´d like to bump this request, too.
I use aliases to link many different spellings of a word to the same page. It´s just the most intuitive and fastest way. For example, if i come across the word “houses” i shortcut-make a page out of it and make an alias on the “house” page. In other languages, like german, there can be a huge variaty of spellings, all concerning the same word: Haus, Hauses, Häuser, Häusern etc.

I somehow can see how each alias has to create it´s own page (even though this clutters the “all pages” site to the point of being of no use at all). But hiding all these pass-through aliases in the graph page would be a huge improvement.

I consider it a main theme of logseq to make note taking simpler - and decluttering definitly is a huge part of simplicity. Thanks
