[Feature] Split Down & Split right command for Obsidian Mobile on phone

Use case or problem

I regularly used the split down and split right commands on Obsidian Mobile on my phone, and definitely miss them now that they are gone.

Proposed solution

I’m not sure if it is in bad form to request something that has been intentionally removed, but I definitely would very much appreciate if the split down and split right commands were returned.


I’m going to upvote this one, although I’d much prefer a split right option. I sometimes find it useful to view two notes side by side in landscape orientation on my Max iPhone.


Good point. I will adjust the request. I agree that that is useful. Thanks.


I also would really like to see this feature returned.
Having two panes open at a time on my phone has been central to my workflow, having this removed has been a bummer.


Same here, with sliding panes enabled one was able to swipe between 2 full size panes fast and elegant.
Somebody said somewhere that it would probably be easy to implement this functionality in a plugin. Forgot where I read this.


Count me in. I need this feature

I thought that this was a bug. The options are still there, but isn’t working.

I had to downgrade to use it again


Yes. I use Obsidian on a tablet that easily has enough screen real estate for a quadrant setup with 4 notes open and vissible. It is so helpful for me to have this capability for my workflows. Please bring this functionality back to Android. Sincerest thanks.


agreed, i like the split down on mobile to refer to another note quickly

Please bring back this feature, it was an important part of my workflow as I mainly take notes from my phone. It is sad that it’s gone!

I concur. This feature is essential to my notetaking workflow with the Media Extended plugin. Splitting vertically is handy when in portrait mode on mobile, and splitting horizontally is useful when in landscape mode.
