Excessive processor use with graph view

Steps to reproduce

Split the main window in 3-4 panes. cmd-G. Now a nice graph view will show up. Now switch to another app. Next watch the CPU use in Activity Monitor.

Expected result

Ideally no cpu or very little cpu time is used when nothing is going on in obsidian.

Actual result

Obsidian uses about 120% (67% renderer, 33% GPU, 20% window server). This is the case even when focus is on a different app.


  • Operating system: MacOS
  • Obsidian version: 0.6.3
  • Using custom CSS: no

Additional information

please, check with 0.6.4. If you still have the problem, I’ll reopen the bug.
