Additional information

post a screen recording of this happening in the sandbox vault

Done that - are you able to see it though since changes there aren’t saved?

The screen recording shows me launching Obsidian, clicking on a new note, the title of which appears at the top of the existing note. After 3.10, the content of the new note appears.

I then do a search on a term I know is in the title of a note. A few results are returned, more were returned but after 10 minutes the search is still going on.

Where’s the screen recording?

Not sure how to get it to you. Don’t know how to add it to sandbox vault as you requested.

Upload the screen recording somewhere and attach a link here.

Make the sure the screen recording is of this bug happening in the sandbox vault (or no themes/no third party plugins).

Also, make sure you vault is stored locally on you device (no google drive options to download the files on demand).

I am gonna move this to help, because I don’t think there’s bug here.
