Direct opening in iOS of files in Files app

Use case or problem

Now that the iOS mobile folder in iCloud is cordoned off from the rest of files (no dragging or moving to or from outside the folder), when one clicks a markdown file, it opens Obsidian but not the file in Obsidian. Since the Files app is easier to navigate for certain types of browsing, and has Spotlight, it would be great if the file actually opened in Obsidian on selection, not just the app.

Proposed solution

Click on a markdown file in the iCloud Obsidian folder and it opens the file in Obsidian.

Current workaround (optional)

I have a shortcut launched via the share sheet in Files that forms an x-callback command to open the file in Obsidian and executes it. Works like a charm but is a few more extra clicks than the proposed solution.
