Same here. I just found out about this issue and wanted to post about it.

  • Operating system: Windows 10 Pro x64
  • Obsidian version: 0.11.5

Surprised no one else came in to report the same issue. This post was quite a while back. I thought it was a new issue, haha.

Same here: Not only is the zoom level reset in the original vault, also the zoom level of the new vault is not how I left it when I last closed it.

That’s quite annoying when separating content into several vaults and needing to switch between them (w/o keeping them open all the time).

Steps to reproduce

After previously resizing the program via “ctrl” + “-” and then trying to open another vault using the “Open another vault” button, the program immediately reverts to its default size, which is quite a pain.

Expected result

I would like the program to automatically not scale.

Actual result

The program returns to its default scale.

Environment

  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.12.5

I also have the same issue. It is really annoying that every time the “open another vault” button is clicked, it reset the zoom level to all the opened obsidian windows.

I am using Obsidian 0.12.5 (installer version 0.12.3), MacOS 10.15.7

Updated:
You can use Obsidian URL to open the target vault directly and this will respect the zoom setting. See here:
