Paths do not break on slashes and hence cause container overflows

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a deep folder path where the folder names do not contain any spaces, underscores, dashes, or other breakable punctuation. (e.g. foo/bar/baz/quux/.../bim/
  2. Add a note in this folder, also with the same rules on breakability .../bim/MyNote.
  3. Open the quick switcher and search for MyNote. You will see that the

Expected result

Long file paths should be able to break on / path separators so as not to overflow, or the quick switcher should be able to scroll left and right to view the whole path.

Actual result

The path overflows off the right of the quick switcher without any ability to scroll and hence no ability to see which note you actually have selected.

Additional information

The path in the screenshot continues another view levels beyond what is visible.


hi, this is a screenshot about an issue in align with the title, that showed after new release; v.1.0.0


before this release in the end of results was a scroll bar for scrolling to the right, if three were long written titles.

i downgrade obsidian to the 0.15.9 version, as you can see there is a horizontal scroll bar there.

will be fixed in v1.0.1
