Why obfuscate paths?

It seems that the main thing holding back other apps like 1Writer from being useful ways to navigate a collection of files from Obisidian is that folder paths aren’t encoded in links.

If I click a link in to a file in another directory, Obsidian will find it, even though the link doesn’t contain the path. This leaves every other app that I know of unable to find the file. Why not keep the paths?

Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere.

we added the option to show relative paths to current file and relative path to vault.
