A while ago I showed off a few plugins that helped improve the mobile experience of Obsidian, today we’re going to show off one more. Customizable Page Header Buttons does exactly what you’d expect from the name of the plugin. It allows you to add buttons to the headings of your notes.

To use this plugin make sure it’s installed from the Community Plugin repository and then go to the settings.

Main Settings Page

Now to add a command touch/click the Add Commands button which will bring up the Command Pallet and let you add any command you want.

Adding a new command

Once you’ve picked a command to add you can even customize the icon for it by clicking the gear icon and choosing a new item from the list.

Choosing a custom icon

While this plugin is intended for mobile-only, you can also activate it on desktop. Once you’ve flipped this switch you’ll need to quit and restart Obsidian to have the buttons show up. On mobile you will need to open a new pane to have any buttons you add show up.

Add button to desktop as well

I don’t actually see this being very useful on the desktop, or with my iPad. I always have a keyboard at my desktop and I almost always have a keyboard with my iPad so I’ll just use the keyboard commands to access the items I want.

On my phone though, I’ve got a quick button to open the quick switcher so that I can search and find documents to open easily. I’ve removed the open button from the mobile toolbar as well just to reduce the clutter.
