Open in default app not working anymore

Steps to reproduce

I try to open a note in default markdown app (Typora)

Expected result

That I can see and edit the file in Typora

Actual result

I get a warning window saying that Windows cannot find the path of the note. Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again.
The notes work perfectly from inside Obsidian and, if I try to open them in Typora from the file explorer it works perfectly.
With the previous version I didn’t have any problems


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.7.3
  • Using custom CSS: No

Additional information

what is the full note name and path?

Note name: Ludvigson and Ng (2009) - 3. Econometric Framework, Bond Returns

You have a lot going on in that filaneme.
If you try to open a simple filename in the root of your vault (“”) does it work?

Yes, it works. I traced the problem and the problem occurs when I try to open any file with any name (in Typora) saved in the folder Ludvigson and Ng (2009). There is so much happening because of the folder organization I have.

If the file is anywhere else I can open it with default app.

can you pinpoint the character that is creating problems?
Not sure if this is something we should handle or not.

The character that was causing problems is :pushpin:. However, after I deleted it and added it again, it’s working. Weird small bug.
Loving the program, and thank you for your time!
