In macOS it it customary for the “X” to close tabs within apps be located on the left of each tab. I swear there is a apple design spec for this but I can not find it at the moment.
For example in finder, mail, terminal and safari when you have more then one tab you will see the “X” icon is left-most positioned on each tab.
I know this is a “little thing” but being constant makes for a seamless working experience.
Asking for either the default changed or the user option for left or right tab “x” buttons.
thanks in advanced
Obsidian isn’t primarily a Mac app. Likewise, to use “seamless” as an argument, it should be self-consistent between all operating systems.
That said, as a workaround, it’s likely possible to change it with CSS. I don’t know how with the new theme scheme, but this is the title element:
And this is the X element:
<div class="workspace-tab-header-inner-close-button" aria-label="Close"><svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" width="24" height="24" viewBox="0 0 24 24" fill="none" stroke="currentColor" stroke-width="2" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" class="svg-icon lucide-x"><line x1="18" y1="6" x2="6" y2="18"></line><line x1="6" y1="6" x2="18" y2="18"></line></svg></div>
Here’s a CSS snippet you can add and enable:
/* Move close button to the left of tab */
Thank you @obsequious and @rigmarole
in the grand scheme of things this “issue” is not an issue. Personally when it comes to my work flows i can be a bit OCD (i’m sure others are as well). Obsidian is a fantastic app that i use and depend on nearly everyday.
Consider it closed (:
Well, I’m equally annoyed. The close icon should be on the left for every OS: it’s just smarter as it’s faster to close a bunch of tabs in rapid succession. Apple did it right, everyone else is just stubborn haha.
Thanks for bringing it up so that I could also fix it for myself
If you’re rapidly clicking a bunch of little X’s, just use hotkeys.
You know what’s faster than hotkeys?
“hotkeys when your hands are on the keyboard PLUS mouse affordances when your hands are on the trackpad”. I use all the shortcuts
