Obsidian is cool. I’ve got it on a crash-and-burn box.

I wish the graph view had a configurable limit. I’ve seen situations where a document one hop from the current center is off-screen while documents more hops away are in view.

If there was a way to set a maximum number of hops from the current focus, re-mapping each time I clicked on a new node, that would be awesome.
