Steps to reproduce

  1. Create new file inside Obsidian using Ctrl+N.
  2. Open the explorer window aside.
  3. Switch Obsidian Editor to the “Live preview” mode. Click and drag image file named using cyrillic symbols into the freshly created note inside Obsidian window. Then drop it into.
  4. See the result.

Expected result

A script with “![[imagename]]” is created in the note. Image preview is down below.

If you move the image manually in the vault, does it open?

If I move the image manually in the vault, I’m getting the problem you’ve pointed me to in your second post.
