How to move tags and links to properties


Is there a way to move tags and internal links into properties without having to do it manually and without any knowledge on coding or python?

My links and tags look currently like this:

I’ve been trying to find information on this but i haven’t found anything

Thanks in advance.


I don’t have a solution for the links, but the tag transfer to YAML can be achieved using the Linter plugin. GitHub - platers/obsidian-linter: An Obsidian plugin that formats and styles your notes with a focus on configurability and extensibility.

Once downloaded and enabled, navigate to settings and click on the second tab from the left, the location of YAML functions.

  • Scroll down, and you’ll find the ‘Move Tags to YAML’ section. Enable that, ensuring you have the desired form of action selected. E.g., If you wish to remove the tag from the body of the note, select ‘Remove whole tag’.
  • Then, click the three dots and find ‘Lint File’ from the dropdown on a test file, just to ensure it’s behaving as expected before Linting every file in your vault.
  • Your entire vault can be done with a single command. Search for ‘Linter:Lint all files in current vault’ after pressing CTRL+P.

Hope this helps.


Thank you very much for this tip. Also for your step by step explanation.
Actually linter seems to be a nice handy plugin. I’ll look into it when i’ve time.

If some could help me with the links, I’d really appreciate it.
