Devtools context menu is hidden

When I right click a DOM node in Devtools, the context menu is not visible, this only happens when the Devtools is in a separate window, however it works as intended when it’s docked inside the vault.

Right click menu is currently active for the body tag (but is hidden).

This also happens in the sandbox vault, so after further investigation, it turns out that the context menu (right click menu) that is hidden, it does appear when invoked, but it does it behind the Devtools main window, so it’s neither visible nor accessible unless I shrink the window.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Obsidian
  2. Open Devtools
  3. In “Customize and control Devtools” select “Undock into separate window”
  4. Right click a DOM node to invoke the context menu (It won’t be displayed).

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

The context menu should be correctly displayed if Devtools is in “Undock into separate window” mode.

Actual result

It’s hidden in “Undock into separate window” mode, like if the context menu had a z-index inferior than the Devtools main window.

I am also facing the same issue. I don’t think this is specific to PC or a problem with plugins, as this is happening across multiple PC and even a new install of obsidian with empty vaults does not fix this.

please help
