File explorer jumps down after renaming a file

Steps to reproduce

  1. Click on a file in the File Explorer.
  2. Rename the file. (Doesn’t matter whether via right-click or in the file header)
  3. The file explorer “jumps” down the page (the recently renamed file disappears above the fold)

Here is a video:

Expected result

The file explorer should stay still when renaming a file. It should not “jump” around.

Actual result

The file explorer “jumps” downward. It moves the recently renamed file up above the fold. See the video posted above.


  • Operating system: MacOS Catalina 10.15.6

  • Obsidian version: v0.9.2 (this has been a problem on all previous versions as well)
