Annotation inspector: "Insert Back Link" doesn't work for groups

In the annotation inspector Insert Back Link doesn’t work if a group is selected in the item list.

Inserting back links does not use the selection of the main view but the current tab. By default groups are not shown in tabs/preview panes but there’s a hidden preference to change this.

That’s quite confusing as it is possible to write an annotation for a group that’s selected in the main view. Thanks!

For other readers, hidden preference, from help:

DisplayGroupsInPreviewPane: DEVONthink will display the contents of selected groups, smart groups, and feeds in the view/edit pane of main windows. The preview only displays files, not groups.

Just noticed that this affects any item without a preview pane, fixed.
