Obsidian Publish incorrectly prompts user while building an INCLUSION list of folders

Steps to reproduce

  1. publish changes
  2. manage publish filters
  3. click ‘manage’ button under the ‘included folders’ section
  4. attempt to add a folder that is already added

recording of these steps shown here: Screen-Recording-2023-01-01...

Expected result

The program prompts the user: This folder is already included.

Actual result

The program incorrectly prompts the user - implying that an EXCLUSION list is being built; causing confusion and then minor resentment.

Currently the prompt reads: This folder is already EXCLUDED.

Community plugins: for bugs, please first try updating all your plugins to latest. If still not fixed, please try to make the issue happen in the Sandbox Vault or disable community plugins.

Additional information

I did also try this with all plugins disabled, didn’t help; I would have tried the sandbox but I also tried this on a separate bug I reported yesterday and it did not help so my confidence is just generally low on this entire build so I did not take the time.


will be fixed 1.2.1
