Hey there ,
for a long time, I have struggled with tab management in Obsidian.
I often capture lots of quick thoughts or create empty notes for me to come back later to.
Obsidian creates a new tab for every new note, a behavior that cannot be changed in the application’s settings at the moment.
Since I use Obsidian primarily with my keyboard and prefer to switch between Notes using the Quick Switcher, I have no real use for tabs.
That’s why I created a small plugin that replaces the previously active tab when creating a new note.
It will ignore pinned tabs (and manually created ones).
That’s it - it doesn’t do anything else .
