PathRef objects keep a specific path in a document synced over time as new operations are applied to the editor. It is created using the Editor.pathRef method. You can access their property current at any time for the up-to-date Path value. When you no longer need to track this location, call unref() to free the resources. The affinity refers to the direction the PathRef will go when a user inserts content at the current position of the Path.

interface PathRef {
  current: Path | null
  affinity: 'forward' | 'backward' | null
  unref(): Path | null

Static methods

Transform methods

PathRef.transform(ref: PathRef, op: Operation)

Transform the path refs current value by an op. The editor calls this as needed, so normally you won't need to.
