What I’m trying to do

I want to put these files in a folder, but a popup tells me that they cannot be moved because they are invisible. I can see the files in the finder and in my Obsidian vault. What could be the problem?

Things I have tried

Looked up invisible in the help files.

I tried to move individual files from my vault and from the finder. I get the same message that the files are invisible and therefore cannot be moved.

Hi EllenMad, I was going to ask what OS you are using , but you mention the Finder so it must be MacOS.

I’m a Win11 and Linux user so can’t answer you directly, but perhaps it’s an OS issue and not Obsidian?

Thanks for looking. I don’t know what was happening, but it is not happening now.
