PDF Viewer Open PDF externally bug on Mac

What I’m trying to do

Every time I hover over the PDF preview in Obsidian with the cursor, a small dialog window appears saying “open pdf externally”. This is very annoying because it blocks the “more options” menu, it simply prevents text from being marked (eventually it works because it only appears almost always) and adjusting the size of the window.

It’s incredibly frustrating, especially since the new direct jumps to places in PDFs are incredibly useful.

How can I fix this?

Things I have tried

  • reinstalling obsidian
  • Toggling all plugins on or off → no change
