Issue with Opening Ebook file from Link in a Note

Steps to reproduce

Create Attachments folder and save Epub file in this location.
Create a link within note to the Epub file
Press link to Epub file within note

Expected result

Opens Epub file in default applications (Foliate)

Actual result

Opens Epub file in Calibre Ebook Viewer


  • Operating system: Linux Mint
  • Obsidian version: 0.7.4

Additional information

I installed Calibre for Ebook management and wasn’t keen on the viewer so installed Foliate and changed the default app for Epub files to Foliate. When I open the Epub from the file manager it uses Foliate but within Obsidian when I click on the link it is using Calbre.

This is likely a problem in your OS than in Obsidian.
