0.13.16 freezes

Steps to reproduce

When the dev tools panel is opened, after a short while the cursor does not move anymore, although it does not stop blinking.
It is not possible to scroll.

It also happens when when I select a block of text, then delete it by hitting the backspace key on the keyboard. The same thing when I hit the space bar, Caps Lock, …

Calling up ⌘+P to reload does not work, so I have to quit Obs and relaunch.

Obsidian has become unusable like this.

Hey Angel, thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately there is not a single iota of change :unamused:

Feliz Navidad !!

I cannot repro.

Please post a recording of this happening in the help vault.

@koala I tried in the help vault: issue did not occur. So that gave me the idea to turn on Safe Mode. That did the trick and I was able to track it down to 1 plug-in.

I just happen to look in the Discord channel and @argentum had suggested that too.

So, thank you both for your help.
Merry Christmas.
