Insider Build - Canvas - stabil or not?

I have a question about the insider builds.

I don’t have a license yet and I’m very excited about the new canvas version.

I have hardly any money and am still thinking about buying the Catalyast licenses.

why am i writing?

can someone please tell me if you can already work well and stable with the new canvas version in obsidian?

this canvas function seems to be the absolute hit and i can hardly stand to try it out.

is the version ready for use?
is it possible to work with it in a stable way?

i know they are beta versions, but i ask anyway :slight_smile:

does anyone know when an official release is coming?
this year?
next year?

Hi @xverbatim_1977,

I don’t have answers to all of your questions, but I have asked myself the same question. I bought the licence to get this release specifically, and for me it is totally worth it.
I am absolutely nowhere close to a developer, so I wouldn’t be able to say if the release is stable as you intend it, but quite honestly, I have not had any issues with it.
Plus, if there is ever an issue, you can always go back to the previous version, and the community reports (and fixes bug) faster than ever, so you’d be good to go !

Hope I helped,

Yep - I second that - to this non-developer, it seems absolutely solid. Although I would give a slight warning that I too was equally enthralled by the idea of the canvas, and now I’m on the inside and I have it, I’m not (yet) finding the use cases I had previously envisaged. I am glad however that I’ve finally supported the developers in some way - it’s such beautiful and elegant software, that I’m happy to pay that $25 for what has come before!


I agree with @TheHunch, it was also a way for me to support the Developers.
As per the used case, I am still experimenting myself, and so far, here is what I have found :

I’ll surely be finding some new applications for it, and the community will undoubtedly do too.



its no longer just available to insiders, version 1.1.8 of the desktop app we release today, and it includes Canvas.
