Same for markdown
Note: Oddly enough, manually entering the / in front of the path renders a fully functional link. So I feel like this is a text generation issue only?
In most other markdown programs, the generated result is a relative URL and therefore will not work. It’s important that absolute links are actually absolute links as part of the promise “Obsidian uses open, non-proprietary files, so you’re never locked in, and can preserve your data for the long term.” Personally I would prefer to use absolute links because I’m not fully convinced that the link updating mechanic (when moving a file) works as well when using relative links.
