Use case or problem
when I create a not it is always created in the root, but not in the folder I’m working on at that time. Therefore I have to move it as well. Why not creating a not at the location you are working
I don’t think an option is saving to currently selected folder. The only option is “Same folder as current file”. If I don’t have a file open, but I’ve selected a folder in file explorer, I’d like the keyboard shortcut to create a new note to create it in that folder.
As I understand it, there’s no notion of a “current folder”. The closest you can get is the folder that the currently selected note is in. This would be handy not just for adding notes to a current folder but also for searching for just folders, not notes. Or filtering folders in the sidebar. I’d really like to be able to do this.
Just started with Obsidian and I would also love this feature. The interface is familiar to VS Code and having similar folder selection and file creation behavior feels intuitive to me. Love the product!
