This is not an issue of sort, but not completely expected, so I just wanted to mention here in case something that Airtable cares ponder on further. When lookup up source record (from within the linked table) - the window shows visible fields as defined by the 1st (top most) view defined in the source (main) table.
Let’s say I have 2 tables, table A is linked to table B. In table A (my main table) I have 2 views created, the 1st view has 200 hidden fields and the 2nd view has 100 hidden fields. The record in Table A is linked to Table B via a field.
I go in table A and open that 2nd view in Table A (with 100 hidden fields) and then jump to my linked table B where I open the linked record - I get window that looks like this:
The number of hidden fields is determined by the 1st (top most) view defined in the source (main table A) and that is regardless of what view I have currently open in my table A.
I would have expected the number of fields (see the picture) to be determined by the number of hidden fields in the view I have currently opened in the source (main) table).
It’s a small issue but it’s just something that could be improved on.
