Copy Search Results: Remove List prefix limitation

Please replace the limited drop-down list with a simple field for text entry.

It seems silly and limiting to not have a field where we can enter whatever we want for the prefix.

No need to suggest search and replace as a workaround in the comments. It’s possible to get what we need with extra steps. But why not simply improve the feature and do it here?

yeah one step away, not steps

If we add a suffix there, it would be possible to have comma separated values too. The default suffix right now is a new line \n, for comma-separated lists the prefix should be empty and the suffix should be a comma and a space , .

Totally agree with this and the suffix suggestion.

Ha, if you could input any characters as a prefix, you could actually make this a Copy URL Scheme action, too: prefix with obsidian://open?vault=vaultID&file=.

+10 to that. I had created my own version of this in my homemade add-on tools. I offered all the options:

  Title = 'Note Title',
  Filename = 'Filename with Extension',
  RelativePath = 'Relative Path',
  AbsolutePath = 'Absolute Path',
  ObsidianUrl = 'Obsidian URL',
  MarkdownLink = 'Markdown Link using Obsidian URL',

Reminds me of this request https://forum.obsidian.md/t/expand-copy-file-path-with-format-options/5737
