Steps to reproduce
Open a pdf in the new pdf view(Obsidian v0.10.8) and click on pdf. Try to use
Ctrl + o or
Ctrl + p. Same problem in embed if you click on pdf.
Opens quickswitcher or command prompt
- Operating system: Windows
- Obsidian version: v0.10.8
There is a similar problem in vscode with pdfs. I dont know if it is the same source for the problem.
we won’t be able to fix this.
I already thought that, but at least I tried.
A workaround I found is to click on the pane of the PDF, not the contents.
Well, technically you can click anywhere that is outside the PDF and it would get the hotkeys to work again, but clicking on the pane itself has allowed me to do things that are specific to that pane; an example would be to maximize using the Maximize Active Pane plugin, where you would need to have the PDF active in order to do so.
I do have a related concern however, Imma ask here in case if it’s impossible to fix/add for the devs also.
In Mac (and Windows depending on the touchpad), we can use the trackpad to zoom in and out on a page and PDF like we would with an iPad or phone, yet this functionality is absent in Obsidian’s PDF viewer; though we have the zoom in and out buttons, it’s just not the same IMO. Is this likely to be included in a future update or is this also unfixable?
I can totally agree with you.
Does the trackpad work in the pdf viewer of chrome?
Ok it’s working in chrome. Likely it’s not working in Obsidian for the same reasons. We’ll look into it.
Steps to reproduce
- Open a pdf inside the app via a link
- Try to naviagte back via the hotkey (i have mine set to
I expect it to naviagte back
Nothing. I have to click on a file in the file directory or backlink sidebars to naviagte. Once I return to the pdf it works, but it’s that FIRST time I open the pdf that it gets stuck.
- Operating system: mac
- Obsidian version: newest, it’s been a problem for a long time
Still not able to fix this?
Can I define something else to deal with this?
I might just convert the PDF’s that cause lots of grief into jpg…
