Please also try your repro steps with third-party plugins and custom CSS disabled and see if it’s still reproducible. If it’s an issue with third-party plugins or themes, try contacting the author for help.

Have you tried that yet? You’re running a lot of plugins. And it could very well be one of them causing the trouble.

Yeah, probably community plug-ins, especially dataview. I open a file with a lot of embedded Dataview pages and it takes awhile to load the page. Before the page is fully loaded, I immediately switch to a new page, rendering that new page blank.

  • Temporary solution: command E to switch back & forth between edit mode & read mode.
