I’m wondering, as well, as to why, when using the Editing pane–view with the Live Preview editing mode enabled, inline dataviews fail to render live previews of their output.
I’ve been using Obsidian for five days and, in that time, I hadn’t switched from the Editing pane–view to the Reading pane-view once until today when I finally figured out that that’s what I have to do to see inline dataviews rendered —I didn’t even know Reading pane-view existed. All the other plugins I’ve been using render in the Editing pane-view with Live Preview editing mode enabled. I spent a bunch of yesterday and the day before thinking Dataview just didn’t work and trying to troubleshoot it: I disable every other plugin, eventually completely reinstalled Obsidian, and spent a bunch of time googling.
That inline dataviews don’t render their results in the Live Preview editing mode was really intuitive to me. And, yes, I get now that I can just switch to the Reading pane view, but I don’t want to have to toggle back and forth; it’s annoying.
