Is it possible to create a note directly in a folder rather than at root level?
Put your mouse on that folder, right click, new note
the “right click, new note” solution works great like @GreenChocho
but it gets tedious, and if you want to make [[links]] into a folder, they will be created in the root folder
the solution for links is to put the name of the folder inside the double brackets, followed by a
that way the new note is created inside the folder
since it’s tedious to have to write the whole folder name, I rename my folders to just one letter such as “f” for “folder”
that way to create a link to that folder I only need to do
hope that helps
There is a preference for this, too—if I recall correctly, you can tell Obsidian to always make new files in the same directory as the currently-edited directory, in the Root folder, or in a specified folder.
I wasn’t aware of that, I’ll test it out, thanks for the tip
quick question @ryanjamurphy I don’t have more than two sub-folders, but since one of my sub-folders contains all of my permanent zettelkasten notes, I spend a lot of time linking in there.
I created a vault inside my vault, that way I can filter my files to just show my zettelkasten folder as a root folder and make links easily in there. (without all the noise of my main folder)
So far it works alright, but do you see any downsides to this approach?
awesome, thanks I’ll check that out!
