In the file pane of the Obsidian, the files and the folders show in one single pane.
Take the help vault as an example, if I want to expand the
How to folder:
it would become like this:
All the other folders are pushed out of the screen. If I want to check out the
Panes folder, I have to collapse the
How to folder, then expand the
Panes folder. That’s not pleasant, right?
To improve the experience, the split view could be introduced, which means the File Pane is split into two parts, one parts only show the folders, and the other parts only shows the files within the selected folder, like this:
In that way, exploring the vault architecture won’t require frequent expanding and collapsing operations any more.
Bear with it.
