Thank you so much for the kind words @cameron and @UncleSinger. Much appreciated :+1:

Regarding the Tasks community plugin, I will have to test if the theme works well with it. I don’t have this plugin installed at the moment. I will test it soon, but if you find any bugs, please let me know so I can try to fix them as quickly as possible. Thanks.

  • Active line highlight preset colors: blue, green, orange, yellow, red, purple, pink and gray.


I plan to implement the following features when I have time:

  • Font selection: Choose a font family for headings (H1 - H6).
  • UI customization: Hide or show individual UI elements.
  • Distraction-free mode.


Active line highlight: This feature is available through the Style Settings Plugin, but it is not enabled by default. Do you think it should be enabled by default?

Theme update 6.2.0


  • H1-H6 font selection: Choose H1-H6 font-family.

  • UI customization: Hide individual UI elements, also auto hide UI elements.

  • Distraction-free mode.


  • Style Settings Plugin theme options (UI Settings):
    • H1-H6 font selection: Choose H1-H6 font-family.
    • UI Settings with Basic and Advanced Settings

UI Advanced Settings (Desktop Version)

UI Advanced Settings

  • Activate distraction-free mode
  • Hide sidebar buttons (new note, new folder and others)
  • Show/hide tab navigation back and forward buttons
  • Auto hide title bar top left buttons
  • Auto hide top side buttons
  • Auto hide bottom side buttons
  • Auto hide status bar

When auto hide is turned on, UI elements will gradually appear when you move your mouse over the area where they would normally be, and then gradually disappear when you move your mouse away.

Distraction-free mode

To show the left ribbon, place your cursor on the left side of the screen, it will hide again when you move your cursor away from the left side of the screen.

Hope you enjoy the new features.

@cameron Thank you again for using the MagicUser theme and providing feedback about the Tasks plugin. I really appreciate it :+1:

I also wanted to thank you for showing this theme in your recent video about the Custom Sort plugin. I saw that you were using the light mode. I also had the chance to watch some of your other YouTube videos (Animal Cracker Studios), and I’m really impressed with your channel. You explain things clearly and provide helpful tips about Obsidian. I highly recommend your channel. I’ve already subscribed.

I hope you continue to use this theme, and please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement or if you encounter any issues.

All the best

  • Canvas files are displayed in the sidebar with the Canvas icon (desktop and mobile).
  • Distraction-free mode has been improved to allow you to easily drag the window across the screen, when the window frame style is set to “Hidden”, which is the default option:

    • To maximize the window in distraction-free mode, double-click the tab title header or the status bar corner. To close, maximize, or minimize the window, right-click either area and select the desired option from the menu.
