Window height too large when opening Obsidian

When I open Obsidian the window height is much larger than my screen. I’m running Windows 11 and have 2 monitors, the monitor set as my ‘main display’ is to my right, and a 1440p screen in vertical orientation. The monitor in front of me, that I use to open Obsidian, is a 4k screen in horizonal orientation. The 4k display is set to 150% scaling, the 1440p monitor set to 100% scaling.

Another forum post below looks like the same issue, but is posted in the bug graveyard, though I can’t see any solution.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Use Windows 11.
  2. Use 2 monitors, a 4k monitor in horizontal orientation, and 1440p monitor in vertical orientation.
  3. Set the 4k monitor to 150% scaling.
  4. Set the 1440p monitor to the ‘main display’.
  5. Open Obsidian on the 4k monitor.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? Yes

Using the following command line results in the Sandbox opening with the same issue.
Obsidian.exe obsidian://open?vault=“Obsidian Sandbox”

Expected result

Obsidian to open with a window size that fits within the available screen space.

Actual result

Obsidian window height substantially larger than the height of the monitor.
