Obsidian Release v0.11.1

Shiny new things

  • Obsidian will now recognize symlinks or folder junctions inside the vault. They are supported, but not recommended because of the many issues they can cause. To learn more, read here: How Obsidian stores data - Obsidian Publish
  • You can now change the sorting order when browsing community plugins by alphabetical, initial release, or download count.
  • When you drag and drop files from your native file explorer into Obsidian, it will now default to creating file:/// absolute links. Holding the Ctrl/Cmd key will copy the files into your vault like it did previously.
  • There is now a command to toggle comments. By default it’s Ctrl/Cmd + /.


  • Clicking on links to notes that haven’t been created will now create the folder structure if the parent folders don’t yet exist.
  • Global search will now find attachments as well if you use file: or path: operators.
  • You can now use <iframe> to embed even more sites that previously wouldn’t show. This is done by patching the Content-Security-Policy header containing frame-ancestors that some websites use to prevent embedding.
  • When looking through the version history of Obsidian Sync, you can now select and copy the file contents for each specific version.
  • Hovering markdown links in edit mode will now highlight them.
  • Korean handling has been improved to perform character match instead of word match for unlinked mentions and quoted searches.

No longer broken

  • Image embeds will no longer go to the next line.
  • Fixed lag when typing at the end of a large document.
  • Graph color groups no longer reset to black for some colors.
  • Moving a file will no longer show a “successfully renamed” message.
  • The toggle highlights command/hotkey will now toggle properly for multi-line selections.
