- From Obsidian settings change the app icon and relaunch.
- Type “obs” in Spotlight: both the icon to the right of the search entry and the one in the list of matches are still the default icon.
- Open Finder, go to Applications, select Get Info for Obsidian, drag&drop a third icon over the default one shown in the info dialog.
- Type “obs” in Spotlight again: now there are three different icons! The one to the right, the one in the matches list and the one in the Dock.
Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]
Everywhere in the system Obsidian shows the same icon.
Two different icons are present after changing the original one the official way (from settings). It’s not possible to workaround this by additionally replacing the icon the usual macOS way. Even changing the icon inside the app’s Resources folder won’t do it. I’ve shown that there are at least three “degrees of freedom” when it comes to set the icon.

It’s nice that you provided a way to customize the icon from inside the app but, at least in macOS, it works worse than the macOS way and, moreover, it’s preventing successfully using it.
