Start Obsidian. Switch away to another window while keeping Obsidian visible. (this is tested on Windows)
The title bar should give some visual indication whether the Obsidian window is active (i.e., receiving keystrokes) or not, e.g., by changing color.
This is not the case, it always has the same color, such as dark gray with the default light theme. The only way to tell if the window is active is to look for a blinking cursor.
- Operating system: Windows
- Theme: Default light or default dark
- Debug info:

While this would also solve this issue here, what I describe is more narrow and could also be solved with only the frameless design. Right now, it’s just impossible to see if Obsidian is active or not. When one is using Obsidian side-by-side with apps like Chrome or Firefox, it becomes very hard to tell what app is active. That’s why I believe it should be considered a bug.
