I kindly request that Obsidian Sync and Obsidian Publish (that is, the services and their plugins) support any kind of file type. That is, not just images, audio, videos, and PDFs.
Use case or problem
I drop and reference any kind of file into my Obsidian Vaults, not limited to images, audio, videos, and PDFs.
Examples include, but are not limited to:
- Documents, spreadsheets, and keynotes (from both Microsoft and Apple office suites)
- Archives (zip, rar, tar.gz, etc.)
These files are missing in all synced Vaults that are not the origin one. I am missing several attachments:
- In iOS devices
- In other computers
There is no workaround to this. Syncing with another cloud solution (Dropbox, iCloud, …) is discouraged when using Obsidian Sync, and only iCloud is supported by the mobile app, anyway, which I would like to avoid.
Please allow “all other” (including a switch for “other”) files to be synced.
Same use case as above, but now my public notes have broken links to “forbidden” attachments. I would like to share related attachments in my public notes.
These two missed functionalities severely limit the potential of Obsidian.
- Allow syncing any file type in Obsidian Sync. Have a “misc” toggle for all other files
- Allow publishing any file type in Obsidian Publish. When a file can’t be visualized, make it downloadable instead of having it shown inline like with a pic.
Current workaround (optional)
Hosting files with another cloud solution and link to them in notes. Clunky.
Thanks for considering!
