thanks for the suggestion. Do you know if it is possible to point to specific parts of the file, though? (I don’t think it’s currently possible).
The reason I ask, is I have these big PDF documents which contain lots of different email threads, each one with different dates and/or people involved. Pointing to the file would not be useful without the ability to point to a specific part of that file.
Probably not, but check the community plugins. I vaguely remember seeing something recently that claimed to be able to do that (but I might be misremembering, or it might have been something outside of Obsidian).
You could also research options for extracting those emails from the PDFs so you could store them in a more flexible format.
As a workaround, you could write the page number of each email you want to link to. Then instead of clicking a link, the flow would be to click the link, write the page number in the page number box, and press Return (or scroll if Obsidian’s PDF viewer doesn’t have a page-number box). It’s slower, buy maybe acceptable.
