What does workspace.json do?

I’m trying to sync a vault between two PCs using SyncThing, and there’s a perpetual workspace.json conflict. Is it ok (or even advisable) to ignore the file when syncing? I get the feeling that it tracks what tabs are open etc., because the conflict happens when different tabs are open on the two PCs.

It saves your workspace layout so that the vault will reopen in the same state that you left it in. The contents of workspace.json in one of my vaults:

  • What notes are open in what tab or tab groups and the layout of windows, sidebars, etc.
  • What items are in your ribbon
  • Last opened files

If you don’t want to sync it, that should be fine, but the state of the above won’t be the same between the desktops.
