Sorry - totally dumb question most likely, but I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find the answer.
Where has the menu gone from the left handside of the IOS app for Obisidian in 1.0?
Am really missing being able to quickly roll the dice on viewing an old note. Apart from pulling down the Command Palette and selecting it from there, is there another way similar to the toolbar method previously?
I still have it on desktop, so I am not sure about mobile. But to answer your question about “another way”, you can also set a hotkey.
Just to help debug your issue:
Do you have the Random note plugin turned on in Settings → Core plugins? Maybe it got turned off.
Did you make sure to update all your community plugins? For example, if you happened to have Smart Random Note installed, maybe it is interfering. (I do, and mine is up to date, and it seems fine.)
Are you missing any other buttons? Have you tested with default theme, and no CSS snippets? There were major changes to how themes work, and as the release notes mention, it’s important to make sure all your themes and plugins are up to date and compatible.
Thanks Barry! But wow - a lot more keypresses to generate a random note, which is a shame because it was so nice before to be able to quickly and repeatedly shower yourself with past material! Hopefully one day they will allow user customisation of those 4 ‘permanent’ commands at the bottom of the page…
You don’t need a special setting, that’s just how it works.
That button changes depending on which button in the extended list you last used. If you use Random Note it becomes the Random Note button. If you pick File Explorer, it becomes that. When you want a different command you long-press to see the list.
below the ribbon bar there is another row with 5 icons (left arrow, right arrow, circle with + sign, a “tab” icon (I have a square with a 2 in it) and on the right is the icon that changes to the last command selected on a long press. if you choose "random mote, it will change to a square with 5 dots inside, like a die
