Can't change folder path for Zettelkasten notes

The folder path for Zettelkasten notes won’t change unless I manually change it in zk-prefixer.json.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Specify folder path as ABC
  2. Change the folder path from ABC to XYZ (either via settings or by renaming the folder via the left pane in the app).
  3. Click Create new Zettelkasten Note button.
  4. Error message: Folder not found and note not created.

Expected result

I should be able to rename/change the folder path without getting error messages. Renaming the folder path should change the folder path zk-prefixer.json.

Actual result

Folder not found and note not created.


  • Operating system: macOS
  • Obsidian version: 0.7.5

I think you need to do both and then you will be able to create new notes?

That fixed the problem! Thanks! Wouldn’t it make more sense to have the following behavior instead? Renaming the folder should automatically change the folder settings, and vice versa? So users only have to make one change instead of two? Still, thanks!
