Show more button for the right pane icons

Use case or problem

I was having so much issues trying to get my calendar to pop up. I found that there is no buttons to show there are more icons in the right pane so unless you expand it you won’t know there is additional info.

Proposed solution

The last button visible should be a “…” or a “>>” like on firefox.

Current workaround (optional)

Drag the pane to a bigger size every time needed to see the buttons

I believe you can also hover the mouse pointer over these buttons and use the scroll wheel to make the hidden buttons scroll into view. Would that help for now?

This does work however it doesn’t resolve the issue of not knowing that there are more icons.

From a UX perspective i don’t usually go and scroll on different parts on the UI unless it looks like a large panel. I think an indicatore to show there are more with maybe a hover saying “scroll to view more” would be ideal

To be honest until you mentioned it was scrollable i had tried to click, uninstall / re-install apps and right click. but scrolling on the menu was really not something I envisioned to even try.

I don’t know if it’s the same for others.

As a workaround you can use a css solution for showing your icons in two rows. Try the following snippet:

.mod-right-split .workspace-tab-header-container {
  height: 80px;
}

.workspace-tab-header-container-inner {
  flex-wrap: wrap;
}

I just ran in the same issue and had the same experience. I tried different things but I never thought of using mouse scroll to get to see all the menus. I find it very strange that obsidian which is such an interesting user-oriented program does not have that basic solution of some kind of indicator showing there are more, like in many other applications.

Thanks that worked for me!
