- Install Obsidian on my iPad. Note I do not have Obsidian on my Mac.
- Create vault on my iPad.
- Create new file
- Use onscreen keyboard overwrite the default name
- At this point Obsidian requires me to tap a specific location in the note body for me to enter text. The note body is not selectable in locations in the blank area to the left of that selected area.
In step 5 I expect to be able to enter the note area by tapping on any area of the note body.
In step 5 I cannot enter the note area without guessing where to tap on the screen.
- Operating system: iPadOS 15.1
- Obsidian version: 1.0.5
I am using a 2021 12.9” iPad Pro in landscape orientation
I also created an iCloud synced vault and get the same results.
I used my iPhone running iOS 15.1 and Obsidian 1.0.5 (both the same as my iPad) and it works as expected, i.e I was able to enter text into the note body. It looks like the left margin on the iPhone is small enough that this issue is not noticeable.
This might be resolved by automatically moving to the note body text area when the return key is selected in the note file name area. I.e. create a new note, type the note name and hit return to get to the note body. Or maybe I didn’t do a deep dive into the docs to find out how it should work on an iPad.
