Yes, please – this is one of my most wanted features too.
+1 needs a global setting
The lack of this capability is why I stopped using Obsidian. The separation between work and personal vaults is a must for me. There are a lot of clever solutions in this thread, but I’m really not interested in adding a lot of technical overhead into my notes.
Watching this thread now, because this is the only feature I need to jump back in.
Here’s a little python script to copy the config of a main vault to other vaults.
Very much needed.
My current workaround
FreeFileSync (or any other sync soft.)
Sync soft just lets me add to ignore by RBM once for all and syncs the rest.
Also automation is easy.
I don’t like the hard /soft links approach. Links are generally fine but they are to tedious for nitpicking what to sync and what not.
How can I manage same settings across different vaults without any sync conflicts in case of Syncthing ?
As Primarily a Mobile user, this is a particular (and constantly recurring) problem for me. I even tried the official Obsidian Sync, but sadly it can only sync settings, plugins, etc. between devices not between vaults. At this time there is not even a workaround for the mobile apps since you cannot access the .obsidian folder on iOS/Android. I’m not sure which of the 3 Options purposed would work best on mobile, but any of them would be an extremely welcome feature.
You can access hidden folders on iOS by using a third-party app. The easiest free option seems to be Taio, but there are other options too. [Mobile] IOS : App to work with hidden folder
If you’re thinking of automations, I think it may be possible to access them in Shortcuts, or at least point to files inside them.
I don’t know if anyone proposed this solution, but I currently have the .obsidian folder in a centralized location and I created Junction shortcuts in each vault, hence every vault shares the exact same settings, plugins, themes and is always up-to-date no matter the vault.
This is my #1 request. I’ve been using Obsidian for two days and just realized I have to repeat the customization.
