I’ve come to Obsidian with a notebook and journal that contains thousands of markdown files I’ve maintained variously over the years. The markdown has tags in the YAML frontmatter, and I have a question about how that works with Obsidian.
Is there a way to have the graph view understand frontmatter tags? Autocomplete isn’t important to me but I’d love to see these tags used in the graph. My tags are in frontmatter like this minimal example:
--- title: foo date: yyyy-mm-dd tags: tag1, tag2 ---
I’ve seen some conflicting information in the forums that suggests Obsidian’s functionality for this may have changed over time. Is there anything I can do aside from reformatting thousands of files?
Thanks for any help.
