On macOS, the ƒ symbol has a long history of representing “folder”. I still use this shorthand in notes sometimes, but recently found that it can’t be typed in Obsidian. My workaround for this is to call up Spotlight, press ⌥f, copy the symbol and then paste it into Obsidian.
Pressing ⌥+f in Obsidian seems to trigger a “move cursor to right edge of the next word” or something like that. There doesn’t seem to be a way to disable this or change it. Any way this can be fixed—or is this an upstream issue?
(hope this isn’t a dupe… I tried searching, but “⌥ƒ” isn’t an easy thing to search for…)
