Hotkeys \ commands should apply to sidebar notes when they are focused

Steps to reproduce

  • create 2 files: file a and file b
  • move file a to be part of the right pane. I.e. having a fixed position underneath the other standard panes (tag, backlink etc)
  • open file b
  • move the editor focus to fixed file a (in order to edit it)
  • press CMD+ENTER in order to insert “- [ ]”
  • observe that the task notation is actually being added to file b


Expected result

If a file is a fixed part of the right pane, then executing CMD+ENTER will actually put the task notation in that file

Actual result

Executing CMD+ENTER in the right pane fixed file, will insert the task notation in an active other file.

Running into this same issue

Exactly the issue I’m running into. Not just this hotkey, but also moving lines up and down.

This will be worked on in v0.15.x
