Is there any way to link to a hidden file within my vault? (That is, a file with a name that starts with a period, or which is in a folder that starts with a period.)
E.g. a file of CSS snippets.
(I’m trying this in Android.)
Whichever way I try to link to a hidden file, when I click on the link I get the alert “File already exists” But it won’t take me to the file. This happens whether or not the file does actually exist.
- Entering [[obsidian.css]].
(It just creates a new file with that name.)
I tried manually entering a relative path,
And a relative path from a file in the root folder:
And an absolute path in vault:
For these relative path and absolute path attempts, when I click the link I get a toast pop-up saying “Folder already exists”.
- I tried it with a hidden .md file in the root directory, testing each of:
Again, “File already exists”. I tried changing the linked file name to something that didn’t exist, but I still got “File already exists”.
