Properties were available, adding 3 hyphens (
---) at the very top of a note in Live Preview (creating at the same time YAML in source mode) would automatically bring up front the
Properties view in the note and one could easily add Properties/YAML to the current note from there .
The Catalyst release of Obsidian
v1.4.6 seems to break that behaviour for me …
(See down below for the result I get)
- Open the Sandbox Vault
- Try to add
Start Here.mdby typing the opening
---at the top of the note (on line 1)
Did you follow the troubleshooting guide?
Yes, this was tested and reproduced in the Sandbox vault
I was expecting to see
Properties appearing in Live Preview once I added the
--- at the top of the note, as it always did so far .
Once the 3 hyphens (
---) are in place (where they should, at the top of the note), they “disappear” in LP and the
Properties view is nowhere to be found/inaccessible/not rendered within the note as it was before Obsidian
On the other side though, in Source mode, the
YAML tied to the
Properties are created.
(I mean, the YAML block is definitively there as the 3 “closing” hyphens (
---) are automatically created once the 3 opening ones are added to a note… as expected)
From Live Preview, I can’t add any key/value pairs in
Properties … as well, the
Properties view doesn’t show up in the note but, I can still create key/value pairs of YAML in Source mode…
I’m pretty sure this is not even close to how I can describe what actually happens () so here’s a screen-recording :
Left side is
Live Preview and right side is
I also have no idea why, when trying to type anything (the word
Prop in the screen-recording), the cursor is moved backward …
As I type the letter
P then try to type
rop after it, the cursor gets automatically placed before the
P leading to
ropP instead of
Edit: Here’s another screen-recording, still from the Sandbox vault where I’ve toggled
Show line number setting .
Once again the left side of the screen-recording is in
Live Preview and the right side
- In Live Preview, after typing the 3 “opening” YAML hyphens (
---), instead of having the
Propertiesview rendered on
line 1, the lines 1 to 3 seem to get “eaten”, the note now beginning on line 4 without any access to the previous lines.
- In Source mode, the lines 1 to 3 seem to be now reserved for the YAML block (as expected, I think )

I didn’t change any settings in Obsidian between
v.1.4.6 and it was working fine earlier .
I updated the installer from
Properties was publicly released but other than that, nothing changed in my vaults (no theme, no new plugins…)
Edit: Added another screen-recording.
