Bad interpretation of character '$' in editor


this is my first post here, so let me just say: obsidian is plain awesome, thank you very much :heart:

Steps to reproduce

There are files in my vault and their name starts or contains character ‘$’, ie. $index
I want to link them like:

[[$file]] [[$file]]
[[$file]] [[$file]][[$file]]
[[$file]] [[$file]][[$file]] [[$file]] [[$file]] [[$file]]
[[$file]] [[$file]][[$file]] [[$file]][[$file]] [[$file]] [[$file]]

but i see distorted view in editor

Expected result

Actual result



  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.10.11

Additional information

$ is used for LaTeX/MathJaX input, hence what the editor shows.

If you’re really keen to use this character and you never use math, you could modify the CSS to treat text between $s as normal text.
