Steps to reproduce
Suppose you have 2 notes. You navigate from 1st note to 2nd note and edit the name of the 2nd note. Now you want to quickly go back by applying
Apply new name for 2nd note and switch to 1st note
The new name is lost, you only get switched to 1st note
- Operating system: Mac OS Big Sur 11.4
- Obsidian version: 0.12.12
Recorded a gif to show that it works as expected with “Go back” button, but does not work with the hotkey
I am not going to take this as a bug.
Hit enter, then go back.
Also isn’t the shorcut to go back alt-leftarrow?
According to menu hints the shortcut for Mac is ⌘+←
But it simply does not work when you edit text. ⌘+← will jump to the beginning of the string on which your cursor is. So on Mac the go back shortcut (⌘+←) will only work if your note is in Preview mode
The shortcuts in obsidian are defined in settings-hotkeys. The menus aren’t used.
@WhiteNoise I’ve just tested default Windows shortcut: Ctrl+Alt+←.
The new name does not get applied on Windows too.
