We strongly recommend you to search the forum with possible keywords before submitting a new bug report. Please also try your repro steps with third-party plugins and custom CSS disabled and see if it’s still reproducible. If it’s an issue with third-party plugins or themes, try contacting the author for help. Once you’ve done the above, delete this line.

Steps to reproduce

  • Go to settings / files and links
  • Go to “Folder to create new notes in”
  • Select “In the folder specified below”

Expected result

I’m expecting a drop-down field to appear that would enable me to select a folder

Actual result

An additional ‘folder to create new notes in’ section appears, but there’s no drop-down to choose the note.


  • Operating system:

Mac Os - Monterey v 12.4 (21F79)

  • Debug info:

I don’t seem to get this option when choosing Ctrl/Cmd-P

Additional information

same thing also happens with attachements

post a screen recording of this happening in the sandbox vault.

It doesn’t seem to be happening in the Sandbox vault though.

Only in my own Vault

It’s probably a plugin or theme problem then.

Thanks for the help WhiteNoise. But I’ve reverted back to default theme, un-installed the 2 plugins i had, and reverted back to safe mode.

Still having the issue, I’m afraid.
