Thanks for reading this post.

This is similar but not identical to:

I am not sure you were supposed to be able to split the sidebar vertically.
We’ll think about that.

Thanks. Hope the option to split vertically isn’t removed. :pray:

Having multiple splits is so useful for my workflow (selfish, I know), and it is easy to work around the visual bug by using hotkeys instead of the mouse. :+1:

split right will be removed in 1.6.4

Grateful for the warning of the upcoming change.

I don’t want to stick on 1.6.3 and fall behind on updates, but I also don’t want to lose the split in the sidebar.

So it seems it is time for me to find a different PKM app.

Please close my forum account for me. Thanks.
