Convert all Obsidian links to a common link format

Obsidian can be set to one of three types of Link Formats:

  • Shortest path when possible
  • Relative path to file
  • Absolute path in vault

Found in: [Preferences > Core > File > New link format]


Switching from one to the other does not update any links previously created. It only works for newly created links.

Feature Request:

Since the importance of a consistent link style seems fundamental for a collection of markdown files, there should be a prompt or at least an option in the settings, to change all links in the vault to the the user’s newly selected format.



Any update for this? I really need this feature too.

Found a plugin which may solve this. List it here for anyone who may need it.
