Tasks Loading

Sort of a bug report. Just posting this here in case it’s useful. Sorry if it’s in the wrong place.

I had a problem with the tasks plugin stuck on “Tasks Loading”

I found this post which described my issue: Tasks plugin says ‘loading tasks…’ after latest update - Help - Obsidian Forum

The user solved the issue above by deleting two corrupt files. Unfortunately my vault was too big to make searching for two random files a viable solution.

So I made a copy of my vault and deleted a folder. I restarted Obsidian to see if Tasks Loading still appeared. If it did I deleted another folder.

I eventually narrowed the issue down one specific folder. Removing that meant tasks worked properly.

It looks like problem was down to some large PowerPoint files I had stored in that folder. I wonder if the Tasks plugin was looking through these and getting stuck?
