Additional information

Supplementary Information

This is on a MacBook Pro M1.

The same problem occurs if WiFi coverage disappears. This can happen, for example, on the London Underground where there is no network coverage in the tunnels and patchy coverage on station platforms. Or equally in some place with poor/intermitent network access.

The only solution is to exit and restart Obsidian even after reconnecting to a solid neetwork.


will be fixed 1.0.4
