I’ve tried disabling plugins, disabling all plugins (restricted mode), I’ve written in a browser, Word, and Visual Studio Code, and compared my laptop keyboard with my external keyboard. I also write in Obsidian ~ 50/50 Windows and Mac every day with some iOS thrown in and it’s only on Obsidian for Windows that I’ve noticed this. It’s actually been like this for a month or so because I notice it the most when I’m in meetings and transcribing the conversation (and then I promptly forget about the issue until another meeting happens).
does it happen in the sandbox vault?
Giving more system info will probably help; What’s the ram and processor in your computer?
Good point! I thought it was with the rest that I copied and forgot to check.
Processor Intel(R) Core™ i5-6300U CPU @ 2.40GHz 2.50 GHz
Installed RAM 20.0 GB (19.9 GB usable)
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
Pen and touch No pen or touch input is available for this display
Is there a THE Sandbox, or do you mean creating a new vault and testing there?
I just created a new vault and it happens there too. If there’s a sandbox vault please let me know and I’ll try there too.

? → open sandbox vault.
I would also check if third party programs are operating on your vault.
Oh wow, that’s good pc specs. I have windows and lower specs too and the same version of obsidian and I haven’t seen any lag thus far. So not sure
Ah. I had always assumed that icon went to the help docs directly. Thanks. I tried sandbox and it’s working as expected - no lag.
This is a very corporate laptop so I’m going to say there’s definitely some software running on this directory and all the rest that I don’t want there. That said I see that they set up OneDrive to grab the Documents folder that my vault was in. I copied my vault to another directory that I have access to and I’ll see how it goes. It appears to not lag yet. Thanks!
