Inconsistent treatment of symbolic links

Steps to reproduce

While obsidian is running, symlink a directory external to the vault. You can access files in it from obsidian. Now restart Obsidian. The symlink is no longer recognized.

Expected result

Symlinks should have the same treatment whether they were created while obsidian is running or before. If symlinks are followed properly it should be possible to create new files in the symlinked dir. But this does not work either.

Actual result


  • Operating system: MacOS Mojave
  • Obsidian version: 0.6.7
  • Using custom CSS: shouldn’t matter
