Navigate editor with search feature

Steps to reproduce

  1. In an edit pane, ⌘F to search for a text.
  2. Type the search string
  3. Hit escape

Expected result

The search target is highlighted, and I can hit a cursor key to start typing. Or use cursor keys to get to the beginning or end of the highlighted region.

Actual result

Nothing is highlighted, and the cursor is invisible until I click into the pane with the mouse.
Also, I can’t type (or, more accurately, I don’t know where the characters go when I type).


  • Operating system: OSX 11.0.1, 11.2.1
  • Obsidian version: 0.9.17, 0.11.1

I’d also love to see this feature introduced! It’s currently pretty clunky trying to do a search within a note and then actually act on the results.
