I can't edit

Steps to reproduce

I created a new note and the cursor turned green, and then I can't edit anymore either in my windows laptop or the macbook pro. I'tried rebooting, reinstallation of the Obsidian software. All I have tried didn't work.

Expected result

Teach me how to solve the problem so that I can edit again.

Actual result

I'm waiting to have the problem solved.


  • Operating system: windows10 and MacOs 10.15.5
  • Obsidian version: 0.6.7 and 0.7.3
  • not using

Additional information

if you press ctrl-shift-i what do you see in the console?

If you move that file outside obidian vault and start obsidian, what happens?

Actually, the simple explanation is that you turned on VIM mode. Just Disable vim mode.

Problem solved, thank you so much!
