Failed to save the files when the file name contains “#”.
This happens whether the file name has “#” or the directory & root directory has “#”.

Normally it should just be links will not work.
but unexpectedly, the file cannot be saved.
obsidian will show “FILE_NOTCREATED”

The “^” and “[]” in the same category as # (links will not work) do not cause the unarchive situation.

I think “#” can be used as a file name, because if you use the irregular “|” it will fail to change.

Translated with DeepL

That’s an illegal character on Android, it can’t be used in file names.
You also shouldn’t use it on desktop because obsidian will interpret what comes after it as a heading.

Okay, I will change the way I name the files.

Will you set # as the keyword to disable naming?
Seems to be a problem on current Android

Ok, I got mixed up. # is allowed in file names on Android, but it’s not recommended as shown by the prompt because links to it wouldn’t work.

I think the issue might be fixed in 1.0.4, though. Let’s see.

Okay, thank you for your reply!

Looking forward to v1.0.4 ^^
