Steps to reproduce
Clicking on the icons in the left sidebar ribbon with a stylus from a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet.
I expect Obsidian to activate actions when I click on the icons.
Nothing happens when I click the icons. I’m able to click and use the stylus like normal everywhere else in Obsidian. The only place I’ve come across this bug is on the ribbon. I have to use keyboard shortcuts or my trackpad instead.

I believe the issue happens because you can drag and rearrange the top icons on the ribbon. You can’t do this with the bottom icons and they are clickable. It’s not been configured properly for styluses.
I also have this issue, and not only in the ribbon. Obsidian seems to have trouble distinguishing between a tap of the pen (click) and a tap and drag in the drop down menus as well. I’m a new/curious user testing it out and it feels pretty unworkable for me with this issue.
I can use wacom to click in any window, browser, console, but not in Obsidian. Neither the close window button works. Every part in Obsidian is not clickable. But it was not that way before some updates.
This isn’t a universal bug. I also extensively use an Intuos Pro, and it works fine for me in MacOS and Windows. (I’m not saying the bug doesn’t exist.)
I’ve definitely seen some apps where there is zero drag threshold, and clicking is nearly impossible. Especially web-apps. I’m not personally experiencing that in Obsidian.
Things to try:
A test someone here might be willing to do? Use precision mode on your tablet, so it makes the cursor more steady. In precision mode, are you still completely unable to click? (I wonder if it is instant drag, or no click being registered at all.)
MacOS doesn’t have this option, and I don’t know about Linux. But in Windows, there is a Wacom setting. Try turning OFF “Use Windows Ink”, and see if that makes any difference. That has often helped me with some compatibility issues, particular in art programs.
I don’t have a problem with the ribbon icons, but I do have one with the Canvas objects:
I can add and select an item, but I can’t move or change its size.
If I use my finger gestures (I have an Intuos Pen & Touch tablet) it works, but that’s very annoying. Constantly switching between pen and touch is frying my brain.
I’d love to see an update where the pen actions are recognized as mouse actions and it functions as it should.
