I'm interested in views of a coding oriented but not necessarily Obsidian using group.
After seeing a variety of problems on the obsidian discord which could all be related to Obsidian's default of Enter=New Line, I put in a request for Enter=New Paragraph (Shift+Enter=New Line) to be new default; old behaviour as a toggle. Currently it's not even available on a toggle.
The vast majority of programs seem to use this including Roam, Athens, Logseq, Scrivener and word processors.
It's never bothered me much because:
- it only takes me a few moments to switch new lines to paragraphs and vice versa
- I do most of my writing outside Obsidian.
but I thought it was ergonomically a big issue from a muscle memory point of view, so I submitted the request as no-one lese appeared keen to.
But then I wondered what coders and other tech oriented users thought who hadn't maybe got used to the Obsidian way of doing things. I think I'm safe in assuming that most writers, academics and general public would prefer the more common Enter+New Para default.
