I’m trying to have my
obsidian.css file located in my own repository elsewhere on my machine, and then have it symlink’d to the correct place in my vault. Initially, the symlink works fine, however it doesn’t seem to persist past a refresh of the UI, and it doesn’t seem to update if I update the symlink’d file when it has been “properly” loaded the first time.
Steps to reproduce
- Start with no
obsidian.cssfile anywhere on your machine
obsidian.csssomewhere outside of your obsidian vault
- Symlink the file to the root directory of your obsidian vault (i.e. run
ln -sF /path/to/obsidian.css /path/to/vault/obsidian.css)
- Refresh the UI or try changing the CSS file “source” (the
obsidian.cssfile that is somewhere else on your machine)
The CSS for the UI should update if the source
obsidian.css file is changed, and it should persist past a restart of the UI.
It does neither (it doesn’t update, and it doesn’t persist)
- Operating system: macOS 10.15.6
- Obsidian version: latest as of 1 hour ago (doesn’t seem to be version information where I’d normally expect in the Mac UI)
