- Daily Note Setting:
/[KW ]W/YYYY-MM-DD dddd
New File Location: “”
Template File Location: “”
Open Daily Note on Startup: yes
- Open Obsidian/Vault → Daily Note gets created in folder
with a file called
- Close Obsidian
- Reopen Obsidian → Another daily note gets created now called
"2023-11-16 Thursday 1"

“Open todays daily note” also has the same behaviour
Did you follow the troubleshooting guide?
Yes. No plugins. Sandbox Vault.
I expect to open the last file. Not create another file with an incrementing trailing number.
I need a custom folder for every week number.
A simple solution in code should be to check if the file already exists before creating another one.
Everytime I open Obsidian a new file gets created even if the file already exists.
