I just found out about Obsidians feature to put notes into external windows. This is really great as I now have dedicated work areas where I tried differentiating before with only workplace layouts.
When I open a file from the explorer, it will not display in the external window, even if there is an active tab.
Files opened from the explorer should always open in active tabs, no matter where this active tabs resides
Workaround is to open the note and drag it over to the other window. This is cumbersome and will also take the notes history with it which is unwanted.
Only “clean” way is to open in newtab and drag this over.
