I’m looking at all those nice published notes online (for example: Obsidian’s help itself) and do not see any attachment file or folder anywhere. I only see the nice, resulting MD files listed as a nice hierarchy. I can’t seem to be able to reproduce that.
Been playing with the attachment options for the better part of the last hour and can’t set my mind on any viable option.
The vault I’ve created will likely hold a good number of attached pictures (i.e. reading/lecture notes, if that matters). Put them all in a single folder? Really not ideal — I plan to have dozens of MD files in there, themselves in sub- and sub-sub-folders. Put them in an “attachment” subfolder in the same folder as the MD file? Then I’d have attachment folders scattered all over the place in the File Explorer pane. Put them in the same folder as the MD file? Even worse, as I would be seeing all those attachments in the File Explorer all the time.
Is there something I’m not getting? I’ve started to use Obsidian having in mind that the File Explorer was the easiest way for me to navigate between my MD files, but now adding attachments to those files completely messes up that functionality.
The optimal classification, for me, would be in hidden “attachment” subfolders for each MD file — but I can’t either use dotted filenames, nor CSS to hide all those subfolders. Only found a way to hide e.g. a single “attachment” folder in the root of my vault that would be including all my attachments, and like I said, if I plan to have hundreds of them, this is not practical at all.
Anyone can tell me what I’m (obviously) missing here?
