Live Preview disappeared

Steps to reproduce

Open “Editor” menu and look for “experimental live preview.”

Expected result

The option for experimental live preview.

Actual result

It’s not there. I have an insider account and the option used to be there. Yesterday I opened Obsidian and it was gone from all devices (two PCs and an Android). It still says that my account is an insider account. It doesn’t show up in the Help vault, either.


  • Operating system: Windows 10, Android
  • Obsidian version: 0.12.19

Even if you have an insider account, you still need to download the later builds.

Go to ‘About’, and enable ‘receive insider builds’ then click ‘check for updates’. After Obsidian updates, your current version should be something like 0.13.7 instead. Then you should be able to turn on the live preview in Settings → Editor.
