How to filter in graph view to show only the notes in the vault directory

As what the title implies, how? But also, so I don’t bother anyone with similar questions in the future, is there like a tutorial/guide that can help us learn the different ways to filter certain notes and notes in folders using Obsidian’s search? Thanks

I guess the question could be interpreted as: is there a single search filter term to only show the notes in the root directory? Because, if I understand your linked post correctly, you would have to explicitly exclude all folders by saying path:-"folder1" path:-"folder2" etc. Maybe there could be a search term like path:"/" to do that?

In this case, you can use the Regular expressions to get the notes nested at the root folder of the vault:
path:(/.*/) -path:(/\//)


Nice! It’s amazing how you can make incomprehensible text do what you want it to, where did you learn to do that? Thanks!

Reading the help docs really helps. For the regular expression, the greatest thing is that it is flexible, like the math, 2+2 = 3, 1+3 =4, 2x2=4, with some tests, you can always find a way to get what you want. is a great way to both learn and build effective regular expressions. Look at the cheat sheet in the left sidebar for the basics.
