Workaround to hide right sidebar stopped working

I was happily using the following trick/solution/workaround to use screen-space of right sidebar efficiently. It was still working in some version 0.11.(…). In recent versions it does not work as can be seen in the screenshot.

Steps to reproduce

Expected result

As shown in screenshot in the quote above - i.e. Right sidebar disappears as it did in earlier versions, when the sidebar does not contain any pane/tab (e.g. backlinks pane).

Actual result

On the right side of scrollbar in right-most pane, there is wasted screen-space created by right sidebar. On screenshot below it is 21 pixels wide, otherwise proportional to zoom level.


  • Operating system: Windows 7
  • Obsidian version: 0.12.3 ( perhaps originated already in some version 0.11.(…) but I am not sure. )
