I am new here - absoluty stunned by this great tool - but templates in Graph View and Tag-Search are “obscuring” everything for me. I’m a bit weirded out by this, as it somehow doesn’t quite fit with the rest of the polished features.
I’m quite happy using -path:templates to exclude my templates from my graph view, however, I haven’t worked out how to exclude them from the tags view/searches. That is to say, I include tags in some of my templates where I want notes that are created using that template to be tagged in a particular way. However, I would prefer not to see the template itself included in either the tag count or the search results for that tag.
+1 for fixing this issue. There is a lot of reasons for excluding Template folder, it messes with a lot of stuff. tags and also Obsidian to Anki plugin for example. I think it needs a change to the core or a special plugin not a temporary solution for one or two plugins.
+1 from me as well. Not just templates but items I wish to archive, tips and tricks, samples and testing notes I have. Don’t need these polluting search and see this as a basic usability issue that shouldn’t need a -path solution.
