New users end up confused, eventually figure out they have to create a text file manually, refresh settings, then toggle it on. It’s overcomplicated when there’s these multiple unintuitive steps out of the box. Better would be to automatically create a blank css file at install automatically, that’s automatically enabled, and link the users to it from settings. Include a sentence “any CSS you save in this text file will immediately stylize obsidian.” It could even be a comment in the file. Then they can paste css in and it immediately works, is intuitive, and eliminates this newbie frustration.

If you have no objections, I’ve merged this here, under the idea to make CSS editing easier and more accessible.
