Cannot reposition text cursor (caret) with mouse when renaming files

Steps to reproduce

  • Right Click (on a file) -> Rename
  • Left click (somewhere on text field) to reposition cursor (caret) within the rename text field

Expected result

The caret should be moved to position selected through left-clicking.

Actual result

The file being renamed is opened.


  • Operating system: Arch Linux, Gnome
  • Obsidian version: 0.8.4

Additional information

Hm. I’m not able to reproduce this.

Does this still happen when you disable custom CSS? Preferences → Appearance

this was already reported and fixed in 0.8.9/0.8.10. Please, search before posting

Yeah, sorry. I honestly didn’t think of checking the changelog. Will sanity-check against the latest version next time or just stay on that one by default.
