Swapping panes resizes all of the other panes

Steps to reproduce

When I drag and rearrange stuff in Obsidian’s masonry mode, it just moves it around in all sorts of annoying ways!

Look, I’ve got this drag maneuver here.

Which changes to this:

And then I need to resize everything back to normal manually.

Expected result

I expect it to just switch the panes, not change the size of every other pane!

Ideally, this wouldn’t happen at all. I’ll make a feature request for this at some point, but I would love to be able to have certain arrangements of panes that I can just load up at any point to quickly clean up rather than having to do a lot of clicking and dragging. Vivaldi browser does something like this.


  • Operating system: M1 Macbook Air, 11.2.3
  • Obsidian version: 0.11.9

Additional information

This was also tracked here and is supposedly in the bug graveyard, but it’s still a problem. Rearranging pane changes the size of other panes

does this happen in the help vault? can you post a screen recording of that?

I couldn’t reproduce it with the help vault. Here are some recordings:

Tested on the default theme too:

Tried turning off community plugins by turning on safe mode, and the same thing happened.

Seems @licat figured this out. Should be fixed in 0.11.11

Fantastic, thank you Licat and WhiteNoise!

I’ve spent most of my time on masonry mode in roam and still haven’t figured out what the equivalent on Obsidian is. @rob— what did you mean when you say Masonry mode? how do I enable it?

I just mean the tiling that’s default! Just drag your panes around. https://twitter.com/RobertHaisfield/status/1293937464411709442?s=20
