Scrolling with arrow keys stops suddenly, while drag/drop a note

Steps to reproduce

  • Open Obs
  • Have some open folders in the left pane
  • Have so much notes in the open folders, you have to scroll a lot to reach the top/bottom
  • Click and hold one note to move it into another folder
  • When there is no mouse wheel and the touchpad of your laptop is used by "click and hold"ing the note, you use the arrow keys (up and down) to scroll.

Expected result

  • I scroll up or down until I reach the folder, where I want to drop my note in and drop it.

Actual result

  • The scroling suddenly stops, randomly after 1-3 seconds. Again using up/down-keys do not move anything. I have to let go of the note and close the folders to drag and drop the note from folder to folder to folder … to reach the one at the top.


  • Operating system: Windows 10

  • Obsidian version: v0.8.0

to be clear: I use a laptop and once I have clicked and am holding the note, I don’t have a mouse wheel to go up and down and can’t use my mouspad (touch pad) either.
