I’m relatively new to Obsidian and certainly don’t master as much as I would like to…
In the back of my mind I always try to reflect the mirrored reality of files and folder structure, be it on windows or on macOS or any other OS.
I have read about Obsidian aliases but have not yet made use of them.
I’m looking into following through on Stefan Imhoff’s setup: he combines Obsidian and Devonthink on a file structure that is set up on Apple’s iCloud. (not sure if he uses Obsidian Sync)
Devonthink knows a feature of aliases and replicants. A replicant can be multiplied as much as you want and can be placed anywhere in “a” hierarchy to literally replicate a file.
Does Obsidian have a similar capability?
Why would I want to use that?
Suppose I have a folder of food and a folder of fruit;
Suppose I have a note “apples” that I would want to figure both in the folder of food and in the folder of fruit.
The “apples”- note would only exist a single time, but replicants can be used many times each time pointing to the same “apples”-note.
How would I go about to achieve this within Obsidian?
Thanks for helping out!
