THE external-link icon:

Thank you very much!

Perhaps Excalibrain also uses a template you could alter? :thinking:

Hi @Gururu !

on where it says, “Excalidraw template file”

Could not find this option.
Would you be able to send me a screenshot, please?

To this day, the problem is still relevant. I’m looking for a solution.

Hi @Gururu ! Thanks for the reply!

The thing is that I don’t have this file at all, neither in Obsidian nor in the file manager:

Where could it be?

Hey @friendlmickle, how u doing!? Oh, I see what you’re saying. You yourself have to create that file.

  1. First, create a new drawing

  2. Then, click on the three lines icon (the menu) at the bottom left and click on the “Open as Markdown” option

  3. Now, edit it however you want. In this case, since you want to stop the tag automation that happens every time you create an excalidraw drawing, right? Remove the “tags: [excalidraw]”

  4. Then, after you’ve done that or anything you changed, rename the file as “Template.excalidraw”

  5. Now, store that template file wherever you want in vault (e.g. under your templates folder, if you have one). Then go to the Excalidraw Plug-in Settings, and describe the “Template.excalidraw” location in your vault (e.g. Extras/Templates/Template.excalidraw) on where it says, “Excalidraw template file”

  6. There you go! Glad to help!
