IntelliSense/Auto-Completion for Tags as Front Matter

Things I have tried

I looked through some of the posts in Feature Requests, and what the Forums said was similar to my post, and the closest I could find was this request that didn’t seem to get much traction:

What I’m trying to do

I wonder if there’s a way to get IntelliSense/Auto-Completion for tags specified in the Front Matter similar to how a regular # behaves.

For example, if I go to the top of a file and start with a #, it suggests other tags that I’ve created that might match what I’m typing out.

However, if I try and add a tag in the Front Matter, there is no auto-complete.

Is there a plugin or something I can do to make this happen?


I’m not too sure what the policy is on bumping threads, so if this is a no-no, please let me know.

I could really use a hand on this one. If it’s not possible as of yet, that’s fine, I’d just like an answer :slight_smile:

This is something I also feel the need for but I believe it is not possible yet.

Yeah, that’s the most I’ve been able to find as well :confused:

I’m not sure where Feature Requests go, would you happen to have found the request that came from that post?

This is the first thing I look for when I learned about the Front Matter tags. Without auto-completion I don’t know how to tag…


I have a feature request for this on the supercharged links plugin: Suggestion: Autocomplete from predefined values in editor · Issue #45 · mdelobelle/obsidian_supercharged_links · GitHub


Thank you for that. Hopefully we can get this added natively to Obsidian.
