My first posting in this forum; hello everyone. On balance it seems like Meta is the best topic for this question, but please redirect me if not.
I have begun to build a new vault based on a large accumulated library of information from SOHO Notes, DEVONthink and other freeform note-taking tools. It’s going well so far, but I’ve hit a bump when looking at tags. I would be interested to understand how people manage the different ways in which the hash symbol is used in incoming text, and how to ensure that Obsidian treats them appropriately.
It looks like Obsidian uses a hash followed immediately by a word to denote a tag for the content. A lot of the files that I’m importing are sourced from code, where a hash is often used as a comment. I don’t want Obsidian to create a whole load of tags (like #LoadModule, for example) for things that are not tags. I can work out how to delete the unwanted hash symbols wholesale from all of the files in the folders. Also, this would in effect remove the comments from my code, which is also not ideal. Is there a good way to achieve what I want to do here?
