Use case or problem
I use obsidian for work and my project structure leads to a lot of duplication in file names, so I use the full folder path to differentiate what I’m linking to. This change means I have to go and delete the auto-added
|file off the end of every link I add so that I can tell the difference between e.g.
[[Projects/ABC/Go live plan]] and
[[Projects/XYZ/Go live plan]].
I use the daily notes plugin to link tasks and focus day to day, it’s important to me to be able to tell at a glance which projects I was working on and what state they were in. I can see how the change is super helpful for a lot of people, but if you use Obsidian with a focus on folder structure over wiki-style linking then context is more important (and actually the ability to work folder-style rather than wiki-style is one of the reasons I gravitate to Obsidian over other tools)
Add a tickbox in the Files & Links section of the settings to toggle this behaviour. It would fit nicely next to
New link format.
