Additional information

which obsidian version?

Is this the default theme?

Current version: 1.2.3(57) apiv0.14.15

Yes I am using the default dark theme

I second the behavior showed by @signus !

I have been using Obsidian Mobile on iPadOS with mouse and keyboard and this is a behavior happens since the first versions of Obsidian Mobile.

90% of the time, when you open a modal, the screen position relative to the caret cursor changes after closing the modal.

This behavior is more easy to see when the caret cursor is placed in a active line that is in the bottom of the screen + the note has a lot of lines after the active line. (editing a line 45 of a 500 lines note where the line 45 is placed in the bottom of the screen).

  • Obsidian tries to relatively center the screen.

Example with Native Feature: Add Tags

:one: Command Palette → Add Tag
:two: Select Tag from Modal
:three: Hit enter to insert the selected tag

:eyes: Look how the screen moves…

:sos: The same behavior applies to plugins that uses Modals to insert text in the active Note like QuickAdd and Various Compliments for example.

Example with Third-Party Plugin: QuickAdd

:one: Command Palette → QuickAdd Macro
:two: Insert Text on Text field
:three: Hit enter to insert on Active Note

QuickAdd Modal

The screen moves
