After using Obsidian for a perhaps 30 minutes, I am unable to edit notes. The cause seems to be plugins. I have eliminated all plugins.
Several days ago, I was not having this problem. As is usual, I clicked off all plugins. Closed Obsidian. Reinstalled Obsidian. The editing worked. Then added the safe plugins that had shown no signs of troubles before this editing problem began. (Snowwhite, sliding panels, Note Refractor, Emoji tool bar) Soon, I could not edit notes.
I tried restarting my computer pressing P R keys with alt control and command ?? Sadly, the problem with editing notes returned after I installed what had been the safe good plugins.
I thought that maybe my Japanese language settings were causing the problem. So, I tried to turn off Japanese. In the Apple system preferences, I turned off Japanese, but the Japanese key switcher icon is still in my menu bar and it still works. I have shut down my computer again but it is still in the menu.
Maybe I am having this problem because of Karabiner which runs my cheap keyboard. I checked the preferences called Karabiner elements. Nothing there about the Japanese key. (The cheap keyboard has a key that turns on Japanese text.) I can use my iPad for Japanese. So, if Japanese is the problem, I don’t need it.
Also, my Mac is a late 2012 iMac with 8 gb RAM running Catalina. I took off all high CPU programs on my computer except DT3 and professional data analysis programs that I need for my work. A video editor, powerpoint. The point is, I limit my usage to 2 of these programs at any time and still have these problems with Obsidian. What could be the issue?
