Obsidian does not use compatible markdown links for pasted images

When pasting an image into Obsidian it uses an absolute path by default but this absolute path does not include a leading \

As seen below, this link should be \pasted-image... not pasted-image...

Some users will want an absolute path (leading \) while some will want a relative path (..\) either would be a more appropriate solution than the current incompatible method that does not work outside of Obsidian.

we are not gonna add a leading \ because we want to be compatible with nested vaults.
Also \ means the root of the filesystem not the root of the vault (according to markdown)

We may add ..\ in relative path mode. There’s an open FR about it (and plenty of bugs too), search for it.
