Hello this is newbie question:
I ve created a canvas, it opens as “untitled”, so i rename it as “canva > test”
I play it around, i like it. then i close it.
Now I want to open it again…
I expect to find it using the Search, but when i look for “canva” i found nothing.
I can see it in the history… but when i click on it nothing happens
I search with the file manager / finder of my Mac and there are 3.canvas file
So, overriding the . or any part of .canvas essentially causes Obsidian to hide the file in the internal file explorer. The fix is to open the vault in Windows Explorer or Finder and fix the extension on that canvas.
This isn’t a bug, since Obsidian is treating .canvas files like any other non-markdown file. But it would be nice if .canvas were hidden in rename dialogs.
I differ with your solution because, at least in my case, on the file explorer, the canva note that i’m looking for has the .canvas extension, and yet is not showing on the search results pane on Obsidian.
