Windows 11,Obsidian 1.5.12

Reproduction method:

  • Press Ctrl+Shift+I to open the developer tools
  • Right-click on the code, a menu will pop up
  • In the menu button with three dots in the upper right corner, select Dock side to Undock into separate window
  • Right-click on the code, no menu
  • Right-click in the Console, no menu

I wonder if this is a Chromium issue? Does the same happen in Chrome, Vivaldi, etc?

I’sorry, but I think maybe no need… and below is debug info

I reproduced this situation in the sandbox, and the same situation occurred with a fresh installation in the virtual machine. Various Chromium core browsers in the same environment do not have this situation. Other Electron apps also do not have this situation.

Understood. Thanks.

This bit tells the team exactly what Electron and Chromium version you are using so there’s no unnecessary back and forth.

And have more try, found something interesting.

  • Make the developer tools window as small as possible
  • Right-click on the code or console output near the bottom
  • You will find the context menu is displayed, but it is displayed below the developer tools window
  • However, the developer tools window is not always on top, it can be covered by other windows

I write it first,yes,in first line,here

It wasn’t clear in your first post that was the Installer version.

Let’s leave it at that.
