I moved my files to a few directories (mirroring the organization I used to use in Logseq). So, for example, I have a page about my friend called
[[Nick]], and that used to be a file called
Nick.md in the root, and now it’s in
[[Nick]] still works, but I have to be extra precious about typing it because Obsidian wants to write it as
[[../pages/Nick.md]] from a journal entry (these are now in
On new files, this doesn’t happen - I’ve set new pages to be populated in
pages/ and new files have an absolute link.
I saw what looked like a similar issue where someone could re-index files that were moved using the
Reload app without saving command, but this doesn’t change the behavior. I have of course also quit and re-loaded the app.
I would prefer that I can type a page name in a link and not have to hit escape twice to prevent obsidian from making it a relative link. This only happens for old files from before that have been moved into the pages folder.
