Editing existing note starts a new one?

Hi All,

New to Obsidian, fantastic tool. Confused about something that keeps happening. When I edit an existing note that I already turned into a page, Obsidian just starts another note and keeps the pre-edited note.

The result is that everytime I edit a note, I end up with 2-3 versions of the same note but with each edit.

Am I doing something wrong here or is this really how it is?

Thank you?

No, that is not how it is. How do you open the note you want to edit? Have you enabled any plugins? Maybe try to create a new and empty vault and see if the same problem exists there as well?

  1. How are the copies named?
  2. Are they located in the same folder as the first one?
  3. Also possibly relevant: is the vault being synced to the cloud?
