Now I have a note in my sidebar on mobile, but I don’t know how it happened and I don’t remember doing it. When I tap the link the note appears in the side pane (that’s how it was when I found it). I’m guessing this is a glitch, but maybe there’s hope?
You should be able to remove it by editing the file .obsidian/workspace-mobile.json in your vault. Because .obsidian is a hidden folder it would be easiest to do it on desktop and let the change sync. If you want to do it directly on iOS, the only ways I know to access hidden files are the paid text editor Textastic, the free terminal app a-Shell / a-Shell Mini, and the “get files” action in Shortcuts.
Here’s my note that somehow got into the sidebar, seen above the file explorer:
I’m sorry, I assumed that file would be synced back to desktop even tho it doesn’t use it. But I just checked and I don’t have that file on desktop, either, so I guess you’ll have to edit it on mobile.
Notes keep getting pinned to my left sidebar on iPad. It’s really frustrating, I have no idea how or why it happens, and then when I try to open them from quick switcher I get no response (until I realize they are pinned to sidebar)
There is a plug in “reading comments” when you deactivate it and restart obsidian, in the right panel is a note saying that the note no longer exist or something like that, and you can tap open and search for a new note. Why is this? Idk.
Actually if you want open a note un each side bar, you can acivate oblogger plugin and automatically it create a left side bar entry, then deactivate the plug in and there is a note icon like an empty tab, just type open and look for the note you want, if you want to change this note just tap command palette and then quick switcher
Today I learned (from _shrigma_ on Discord) that on tablet you can add notes to the sidebar by dragging them to the sidebar icon. Dragging to the sidebar itself (when pinned open) doesn’t work, and there’s still no way to do it on phone that I know of.
