Note tabs, which live in the middle of my layout, come and go. I open and close them at will and don’t want any friction there.
However, the auxiliary views — outgoing/incoming links, local graph, files, bookmarks — do not come and go. I always want them open, and will never intentionally close them.
However sometimes the left or right sidebar gain focus without me being aware of it, and I press ⌘W, and poof there goes a view I really didn’t want to lose. Yes I can reopen it, but it’s inconvenient especially considering I never want to close these auxiliary views.
It would be great if Obsidian could mark auxiliary tabs as un-closable somehow (maybe just “right click > lock”, or similar) so that pressing ⌘W on them would be a no-op (and maybe show a notification saying why it’s a no-op).
Press ⌘T, but that doesn’t restore the original state of the just-closed view. It also makes me re-drag it back to where it was.
