I’m not sure that’s the same issue I’m having on the iPad. My issue is that in Split View I CAN make a selection (highlight) in one app but NOT either (1)Drag and Drop or (2)paste to Obsidian in the second Pane.

Indeed not the same problem.

Yep can confirm! It does not work with text nor with pictures
→ Obsidian version 0.0.16 (3) & iPadOS 14.4.2

Thanks. Maybe we’ll get a comment from @WhiteNoise on this

  1. Copy and Paste IS working in v0.17 (4)
  2. Drag and Drop still is NOT working. Item is selected, dragging ‘appears’ to be working while sliding to Obsidian app (green ‘+’ gif if present), appears to ‘land’, but immediately disappears.

Strangely, I just noticed that dropping a hyperlink from safari does work.

How about selected text from Safari? That still doesn’t work for me.

The same for me. Links are the only thing I found to be working via drag&drop from other apps

Looks like the devs still need to implement the following for a lot of source destinations: Apple’s Drag and Drop UIKit development documentation

I agree that this’ll be increasingly important as more iPhone/iPad users join the fray!
