I’ve encountered some behavior with Obsidian that I haven’t been able to work around. While quite likely self-inflicted, I hope that documenting it here will spark some clever/obvious fix.
- OS - Mac OS X 10.15.5
- Obsidian Versions 0.8.1 and 0.8.2
I have several directories of files in markdown format. For example:
Filenames all have an extension of “.md”
If I “Open Folder as Vault” on " NoteRepository/MorningPages", Obsidian displays
which is the expected behavior
If I “Open Folder as Vault” on " NoteRepository", Obsidian displays
If I inspect the .obsidian directory in the first instance I find
In the second instance I see only
I presume that accounts for the differences in what Obsidian displays,
However, I cannot discern either what I am doing differently or what differences in the contents of the Vault directories would account for the behavior.
I have deleted Obsidian and reinstalled it. That does not clear the problem.
More than happy to provide more information if helpful, If anyone can point me in the direction of a solution (or discern what i am doing that i cannot see), I would appreciate it.
