Steps to reproduce
- create a new folder. E.G., “new_notes/”
- in the file settings, use this folder as the destination for newly created notes
- create a new note with the shortcut ctrl + N
To create all my new notes in a defined folder such as new_notes/
Creates every new note in the root folder.
- Operating system: Windows 10
I saw this issue was supposedly fixed in 0.6.4 File Exporer New note not honoring settings-file new file location
But maybe it’s back in 0.8.2 ?
If it isn’t a bug and I’m doing something wrong, please do help me if it works for you.
It’s important to be precise when trying to explain or solve a bug. You said you create a new folder "new_notes/"
Do you actually have a “/” in the folder name? I can imagine that causing problems.
Can you show a screenshot of your settings, or the folder, so it is clear what the issue might be?
Thanks for the report.
If the folder you created is
new_note, just put in
folder to create new notes in:
new_note. without the trailing
If that does not work, are you sure you have write access to the directory you chose as vault?
Hi WhiteNoise and rigmarole,
Indeed, I put the “/” because I thought that it was mandatory somehow.
I was wrong… Removing it - as you both suggested - did indeed solve the problem.
It works perfectly now (with shortest path but also with relative paths).
Thank you both for your fast reply and help - not a bug, just human error thus
