Automatic image and attachement management

I’d request to add feature to automatically manage attachment / images similar to OneNote or others :

  1. Attachment should be able (or had option at least) to be “attached” to specified notes instead of filled in common folders when being added as link or copied to note. (Plugin “Custom Attachment Location” works okay on new attachment but I believe a native solution would works more smooth and reliable)

  2. When attachment reference / links being removed from notes, it should have capability to remove the attachment automatically to avoid orphan attachments / images.

Scenario for 1 and 2: I work mainly on a daily note to collect daily meeting / discussion / note with many images and attachments. When I review the daily note and want to digest and re-allocate the notes to other specified notes, I want to minimize the efforts to manually re-allocate the images and attachment files one-by-one to move together with the individual notes and delete them in the attachment folder associated with original note.

  1. Provide capability to hidden certain folders (i.e., attachment folder) so that explorer can show more notes for easy note access.

I’m a great fan of obsidian, but I believe that this is a big shortcoming which drives me mental when moving notes around

Definitely a +1 from me

Right. I really wish this feature was made. It’s stressful because of the management of attachments such as images, audio, and pdf. When you delete a document, make sure that the attached files are also deleted. If you clip and paste from the Internet, make sure that the image is also saved on the hard disk.
