Really reliable basic automatic embedding would change my workflow. I’m a visual artist who likes using obsidian for research and gathering inspiration. Seeing previews in edit mode would enhance my workflow.
A built in automatic embedding, like almost every other note taking app out there, would change the game. I always liked how Evernote did it. However I’m not sure if this is really what Obsidian focuses on
I’ve been using the “Simple Embeds” plugin which can work okay. However it requires the full link/name syntax “name” often I am just copy and pasting links. It’s time consuming and impractical for me to rename and use proper syntax. Sometimes it works in preview mode without the proper syntax, but most of the time it doesn’t.
Other plugins can do similar things, but they all involve some kind of human intervention after pasting the link (highlighting the link and opening command palette etc.)
