The “recent” pages in the left panel provides very little value, to the extent of being clutter. Obsidian has a plugin called “Recent Files” which once used is an absolute “must have”. It simply provides an time ordered list of VISITED pages. Throughout the day one asks questions: what was i working on before i explored this?, where did i put the code snippet this morning?. It is a valuable way of resurfacing “in progress data and activities”. I would highly recommend either changing the information “recent” provides or allowing .edn file configuration to do so.
Further to this: recently created and modified pages are something for which other means e.g. queries can be used, visited pages are not.
