Insert Template fails if pane is pinned in 8.5

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open a new/existing note
  2. Pin the editor pane
  3. Press the “insert template” button
  4. Choose the template you want to insert

Expected result

Expected the template to be inserted into the note.

Actual result

A new empty “No file is open” pane is created instead of the template being inserted. No errors reported in the console when this happens.

Note: if you unpin the note, and run through the same steps again it works as expected.


  • Operating system: MacOS
  • Obsidian version: 8.5
  • No custom CSS/plugins installed
