Use case or problem
When using Canvas, the user experience of File Recovery snapshots is difficult. In fact, there might not be a way to do it directly in Obsidian, as far as I can tell…
- There is no graphical view. It only shows the raw JSON, which many users won’t be able to read or understand.
- There is no way to restore the snapshot, except by “Copy to clipboard”, and then editing the file externally in a text editor. (As far as I can tell.)
- Consider rendering the Canvas in the snapshots.
- More importantly, give some mechanism to make it easy to restore a snapshot of a Canvas without having to copy to clipboard. For example, a right-click menu on the snapshot, “Restore to this snapshot”. (That would be useful in Markdown files too.)
Current workaround (optional)
It seems the only way to restore a snapshot is by editing the clipboard contents into the file using a text editor.
