I apologize this isn’t the neatest bug report. I’m unsure what happened and don’t dare to tinker further, so I’m just going to describe what happened as best as I can.
Until yesterday I had 2 vaults open in Obsidian for a long time: my general notes vault, and my projects vault (they are separate only to avoid hitting the space limits of Obsidian Sync). Yesterday I rebooted my MacBook for the first time in a while, and when I returned to Obsidian it had updated to 0.13.14. A dialogue about Live Preview had opened; I chose to enable Live Preview.
In the projects vault I noticed that the Better Word Count community plugin wasn’t displaying its word counts. I toggled the plugin on and off, checked its setting, and tried the default word count plugin in hopes that it had gained Better’s functionality. When I tried to re-enable Better Word Count, it wouldn’t. I checked for plugin updates, and 4 had updates available (I don’t remember if Better Word Count was one of them). I clicked the buttons to update them, but when I came back they had not updated. I tried again, and the progress bars for the updates seemed stuck.
I’m unsure of the order of events here: I think I closed and reopened the vault, tho I might have quit Obsidian. When I reopened the vault (or Obsidian), one of the the open notes in the projects vault had lost its contents (I had had maybe 5 notes open).
I don’t recall what I did then, but then or eventually I quit and restarted Obsidian. The projects vault opened with no notes open. Several icons were missing from the leftmost sidebar, which led me to realize that settings had changed — some core plugins had been disabled. I should have left everything as I found it, but I started re-enabling core plugins. When I saw that Obsidian Sync was disabled, I thought perhaps reconnecting would fix things. But then I thought maybe reconnecting it would break my sync copy, so I didn’t. Before this happened Obsidian Sync was syncing some settings but not all (I’d turned some off to avoid problems with Obsidian Mobile).
I’m not sure how to proceed. I could restore from my last system backup of the vault, but I think it is from before the update to 0.13.14 and I don’t know if that will cause problems.
As far as I know, the notes vault is intact.
I don’t see any other posts about problems like this.
