Move file via drag and drop tab to folder

Use case or problem

When you want to quickly move an open note into a folder within a large complex vault.

Proposed solution

Any sort of drag and drop solution would be awesome. Perhaps simply dragging and dropping the tab directly to the folder would work. If that is confusing, maybe ctrl/cmd dragging and dropping the tab. This might be more straightforward since the tab is already used for drag and drop rearrangement of ui.

Current workaround (optional)

It can be helpful to do a reveal in system explorer then just drag and drop the file into the correct folder within Navigator pane in Windows.

So excited to see all the awesome progress to Obsidian! It has been a pleasure to watch. I am very thankful to have been able to be part of this awesome experience. You all are the best!


That would be really nice. It would significantly reduce friction of organizing notes into folders. I bet most of the users have tried to drag the tab into folder at some point, it seems like a pretty natural action.
