Images does not display if connected to a network shared folder

Steps to reproduce

Whenever I paste an image I get no image because src is misspelled. This only happens when I connect Obsidian to a Vault on a network shared folder and I got this after updating to 0.14.5.

Expected result

in version 0.14.2
<img src="app://local/%5C%5C10.40.32.32%5CObsidian%5CPasted%20image%2020220412214449.png?1649814289863">

Actual result

in version 0.14.5

<img src="app://local/file://">

Additional information

When I substitute “file://” with “%5C%5C” on src, the image loads normally.

Oops! Will fix in the next build!

Do you have an ETA for the next build? It’s kind of a show stopper for me.


will be fixed in 0.14.7

Perhaps related.

My vault is on a network folder (but I have the same problem even with files on my hard drive). Image files are not rendered.

I am running v0.14.6 (Installer version: v0.14.2), for .jpg and .png (I have not tried other file types), Obsidian displays the image not found icon, and it will still reveal the file both in navigation and in the system explorer, and, of course, the image files themselves are fine; oddly, .pdf files display correctly.

Copying, for example, one obsidian URL:

I am running WIndows 10 Pro version 10.0.19044

Current version: v0.14.6
Installer version: v0.14.2
Base theme is light (I wish it would follow the system :slight_smile: )
Theme is Typewriter (and the behavior remains if set to Default)
I am not logged in.
Live Preview is the default editing mode. The legacy editor is off.
Wikilinks is turned on (but the behavior remains if it is set to Markdown).
No exclusion filters have been applied.

Thank you!
