I’m having a mare with Obsidian Sync and plugin settings. I’ve watched it update the file on disk (correctly) from remote, then when I access the Preferences within Obsidian, it replaced the settings on disk with the old local settings, then syncs that back up to the remote.
So basically my two obsidian instances are writing their settings back and forth, accepting the others to disk and then re-writing their own to disk every time I go into the Preferences pane.
The only way to avoid this is to allow the new settings to download, then quit before opening the Preferences pane locally, and then relaunch so the settings are read from disk. If I open the Preferences pane before I’ve quit/relaunched, it’ll write the old preferences to disk and remote, and the cycle continues.
This happens on both my macs, neither will update and read the new settings without quitting, and both overwrite the new settings on disk (and remote) with their old settings if the Preferences are opened (which is the bigger problem).
