Set up: I have Obsidian’s “Deleted files” configured to “Move to system trash”, and env is Mac OSX Catalina with Obsidian 0.9.15.
Use-case: If 1) I accidentally delete a file from within Obsidian (either by right-clicking → Delete or by keyboard shortcut, and then 2) I press cmd+z or select “Edit → Undo”, nothing happens.
If I go to the system’s trash and I right click on the deleted note, the usual “Put back” menu option isn’t there and I can’t double-click to open the file and copy-paste the contents because you can’t open files while they’re in OSX’s system trash.
- Make Undo and cmd+z actually undo delete file operations if the file still exists.
- Make files sent to the system’s trash have a “Put back” menu option so that it’s easier to recover them if for some reason you can’t recover them from within Obsidian.
I have to open the system’s trash and manually move the file to my vault.
