I’m not sure if this is covered anywhere else but I wanted to link to a file but change the link text, i.e. I have a directory structure and file such as:
I can’t just use
[[common_file_name]] as it clashes with other files with the same name.
And I’d like to avoid the long path in this document. So instead I used:
[short name](obsidian://vault/<vault name>/top_folder/sub_folder_with_long_name/common_file_name)
and it works great!
* Edit *
I noticed the Linked mentions don’t work using this method. Is there a better way to get around this limitation? i.e. when you click on the file at
top_folder/sub_folder_with_long_name/common_file_name it shows the original file under Unlinked mentions as opposed to Linked mentions.
