This is an absolute path, completely unusable for me for two reasons.
I have hundreds of md files, I need them to work as they are.
I share my md files via Dropbox between multiple devices, including Windows and Android, each has a different absolute path.
When I discovered Obsidian, I really liked it, but now that I am trying to use it, it seems to be more and more of a joke. Displaying images is an absolute basic. How can Obsidian users accept this? Isn’t it unusable for serious use?
I know markdown isn’t really written designed for images, but which features are you missing from the markdown variants for including images?
The point I’m trying to make is that it might be a better option to explore the possibilities of markdown with plugins and other extensions, rather than trying to make a markdown editor into an HTML editor/browser.
Out of my thousands of notes, there are only a handful with HTML mixed in - most of them examples like the above of how to use HTML mixed with Markdown. I use a Markdown editor to keep HTML out of my notes.
“As I mentioned earlier, I have hundreds of notes that use this, and Obsidian is the only markdown viewer that can’t display them. I don’t understand your comment. I’m surprised that a markdown editor can’t display a standard markdown document. HTML is part of the CommonMark specification: CommonMark Spec”
Obsidian’s team is small and there are hundreds of feature requests, and many would feel just as strongly about some of them.
If there are multiple posts in Feature requests for this, you can increase their chances by pointing them out as duplicates so we can merge them into a single one showing all the support (you can use the flag feature in the menu at the bottom of the post for this). Consider the oldest one to be the original and newer ones to be duplicates.
You could also copy the list you wrote into a comment on one of them, where it will have more impact.
