Note Titles Obscured by Cursor in Graph View with certain font size

Steps to reproduce

  1. In Graph View, zoom out so no Note Titles are hidden. Only nodes and links are visible.

  2. Hover cursor over a note.

Expected result

The Title of the Note should be displayed and legible above the node

Actual result

The Note Title is below the node, illegible, obscured by the cursor

Additional information

can’t reproduce. post a screen recording of this happening in the sandbox vault.

Not sure exactly what you mean by sandbox vault…

F1-> open sandbox vault

Screen Capture video is included in this zip folder (could not post the video itself).

In the screen capture I notice that the cursor moves a bit out of the way when floating over a node. This is an artifact of the capture. In actuality, the cursor does not jump out of the way.
Titles are obstructed even in the zoomed in Graph View.

I can’t reproduce. Your mouse pointers look abnormally big.

But… you do see that the cursor is obscuring the titles, right?

What does it look like for you? Can you post a vid?

This is the worst I get.


Is it possible to resize text in the Graph View?

I have a hi-res screen (3000x2000), that may be dictating font/cursor size.

A follow up on this:

I am working on a 13.5" Surface Laptop with 3000x2000 native resolution. This requires that I use 200% app scaling just to be able to see stuff on the screen.

I believe that is the reason we see the extreme obscure bug.

Generally, I think there should be a font size option in graph view, and having note titles above nodes would totally alleviate the issue.
