The latest version of macOS fixed a longstanding bug in the Accessibility Keyboard that prevented word prediction from working properly in browser-based text-editing environments (I’m assuming it’s something to do with contenteditable regions). Because of that behavior, I was never able to give Obsidian a a proper try—word prediction is a must for me if I’m writing anything more than a sentence or two.

So I’ve installed Obsidian, exported all my Bear notes into a folder in Dropbox, and I’m giving it a shot. A nice benefit of Obsidian operating on a “folder of files” is that I can draft blog posts (like this one) directly in my site’s src folder. Kinda neat.
