Obsidian Mobile version: 1.0.5 (based on v0.12.19)
On the iPad, Obsidian clearly doesn’t understand some of the new behaviors in iPadOS 15 related to the keyboard.
Firstly, its keyboard shortcuts are not broadcast to the system. This leads to two problems:
- when holding Cmd, Obsidian shortcuts aren’t displayed. What I get is the cookie-cutter menu like this:
- this leads to the additional problem that if I don’t immediately remember the keyboard shortcut for a given function, and hold the Cmd key for a moment, the above menu displays and precludes me from using the actual Obsidian keyboard shortcuts. This is a terrible experience and makes me use Obsidian on the iPad much less.
The second related problem is that the new keyboard hover menu doesn’t hover, and takes the bottom part of the screen instead. This is how it should look (screenshot taken from Safari this very moment):
This is how it looks in Obsidian instead:
This is not as big of an issue as the first problem but it looks weird and gives us less room for our content.
