Command to reload Obsidian

Use case or problem

When debugging an issue with a plugin, I often find myself closing and reopening Obsidian. It would be great to have a restart command (like the VSCode “Reload Window” command) to do this quickly.

Proposed solution

Add a “Reload Window” command to the command palette

Current workaround (optional)

Click X to fully close the application, re-launch Obsidian from OS

Hi @anstosa, try using Ctrl-R – that causes Obsidian to reload itself.

@Craig how about on macOS? Ctrl+R doesn’t seem to do anything on my system (nor Cmd+R…)

CMD+R works for me.

What version of Obsidian and macOS are you on?
I’m on Obsidian 0.10.6 and macOS 10.14.6

Doh, I figured it out. I had ⌘R bound to “Reveal active file in navigation”. When I turned that off, ⌘R does indeed work for me. 0.10.8, OS 11.1
