License section in About page flickers after Commercial license key entered

I noticed that when I added my Commercial license key, the license section of the About panel flickers for me.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Purchased a Commercial license;
  2. Opened the About panel in Obsidian to enter the license, and entered the license key;
  3. The lower part of the About panel flickrs.
  4. Restarting the app doesn’t make a difference.

Expected result

Just that the license key would be entered, leaving a confirmation in the About page’s UI.

Actual result

The license key section, and the toggle for Insider builds flickers.


  • Operating system: macOS 10.5.7
  • Obsidian version: 0.9.6 with installer version 0.9.4

Additional information

thanks. We’ll look into it.

Thank you. It doesn’t seem to affect Obsidian’s functioning, and I don’t spend much time on that panel either.

I noticed this part seems stuck at checking for updates:


Is everything alright with your network? Has auto-updating been working before?

Hi @Silver

I just noticed that now. I don’t recall if I updated after adding the Commercial license key. I have just downloaded the latest version of the app, and installer. The flickering has stopped now with v0.9.6 and the installer at 0.9.6 too.
