New options for filtering are now available. You can now:
Filter files using same syntax as search. This can be especially useful to exclude certain folders like daily notes with path:-"Daily notes".
Choose to show #tags.
Choose to show attachments such as images, audios, and PDFs.
Choose to hide links to non-existent notes (only show existing files).
Choose to hide orphan notes (files that do not have links, and is not linked to).
New layout options are available to customize the graph to your vault. You can now:
Choose to show arrows for links.
Change the size of nodes and the thickness of links.
Change the centering force, the repelling force, the link force, and the link distance.
Local graph also has a few new option available. You can now:
Choose to hide incoming or outgoing links.
Choose to showing neighbor links. Disabling this option hides links between neighbor notes.
You can now navigate the graph using the keyboard. Arrow keys to pan, + and - to zoom, Shift to speed up movement.
All graph options, including local graph depth and zoom level, are now persisted through restarts.
Dragging to pan now has inertia. Zooming has been reworked to be much smoother.
Graph colors now support custom CSS color: rgba() values as well as opacity: 0.5.
New graph CSS classes are .color-fill-tag, .color-fill-attachment, .color-fill-unresolved, and .color-arrow.
Graph simulation is now done in a worker thread. This should make large graphs much more manageable.
Several optimizations have been implemented to make the graph blazingly fast on vaults of all sizes. Many tricks are commonly used in modern day video games!
Obsidian now supports obsidian:// URIs. For the user manual, check out the help doc Advanced use > Using obsidian URI.
Remember to use %20 to encode the space character, and %2F to encode the forward slash /.
obsidian://open?vault=myvault will open the vault “myvault”.
obsidian://open?vault=myvault&file=mynote will open the file “mynote” inside the vault “myvault”/
obsidian://open?path=%2Fabsolute%2Fpath%2Fto%2Fmynote will open the file at the absolute path “/absolute/path/to/mynote” assuming a vault exists for the one of the parent folders.
The two shorthand from v0.8.15 are still available:
The vault format: obsidian://vault/myvault.
The vault + file format: obsidian://vault/myvault/mynote.
The triple slash format for absolute paths: obsidian:///absolute/path/to/mynote or on Windows obsidian:///C:\path\to\mynote (forward slash also works).
New CSS classes are added for #tags in the editor for those interested in styling different tags in different colors. For a hypothetical tag #mytag, the class will be .cm-tag-mytag. Unfortunately, this only supports English letters, -, and _, since those are the limitations of CSS class names.
New CSS classes are now added to <body> to indicate the operating system. They are .mod-macos, .mod-windows, and .mod-linux.
Markdown importer can now convert Bear style highlight ::highlight::.
Global search and edit mode find functionality now copies selected text into the search bar when triggered.
The vault switcher window now has a language switcher.
Search should now be much faster if only using file: or path: operators, because the file content does not need to be loaded.
No longer broken
On Windows, the vault switcher should now show vault name instead of the full path, which took a lot of unnecessary space.
Splitting a new pane sometimes caused the new pane to be very thin. That should now be fixed.
Clicking on file:/// links should now work properly on Linux. This was broken on a previous release.
On MacOS, sometimes when double clicking the app titlebar to zoom, the window disappears and can’t be made to reappear even if restarting the app. This will no longer happen.
