Two "1 new tab" on the right side and can't be shut down

Things I have tried

What I’m trying to do

I just found out two tabs on the right side of my window but they can’t be closed. Every time I try to click the title, it can’t be chosen and show no results. just like this.
it takes so much space and I really want to close them.

It looks like you’ve dragged some empty tabs into your side pane somehow.

Are you able to right-click on them, and select “Close”?

If that fails somehow, you should be able to click that icon just left of the leftmost “new tab” title" to hide the sidepane, but it’s better to get rid off them as suggested with the first method.

If neither of these tips help, you might need to tell us which version of Obsidian you’re using, and maybe do the Show debug info from Command pallette, to help us further investigate your issue.

Thanks for your answer, But it can’t be clicked. That’s the problem.

Can you please post your “Show debug info” here, like holroy suggested?

Or try to disable community plugins and any custom themes, and see if you can close it. Then you can turn them back on.

If you have “Sliding Panes” installed, please remove it. I don’t think it is supported anymore.

And make sure you have the latest Obsidian installer. Download and reinstall if you don’t. Try to update all your plugins and themes.

Or if that all fails, you can try this: Backup your vault first, to be safe! Close Obsidian, and go to YourVault/.obsidian/ and delete “workspace”, “workspaces.json”, “workspace.json”. These files store the layout of your windows. It will reset all your panes. Including any customization you’ve done to side panes.

my debug info is above. thanks a lot and I’m trying to do the last step.

just like you said, Sliding Panes is no longer supported any more. I just deleted it but it didn’t work. Thanks

Thanks,I’ve solved this problem through security mode, disabling the community plugins. And when I restart it, it work just fine. That two tabs just disappear. I am really grateful for all your help. I’m not very good at English, so, thanks.

Holroy, thank you for your first help. I really appreciate that.
