I use git to manage sync between a mac and windows machine for my personal vault. However, let’s say I write a note on Mac as follow:
Note that macs treat newline as a carriage return followed by a line feed control character. As soon as you open this note on a windows machine in obsidian, it strips out the CR
Which means that the note auto-sorts to the top of my explorer pane since Obsidian has modified the MD file and additionally git thinks I’ve modified and need to push that file. Obsidian modifies any file as soon as you click it with newline changes.
Most IDEs handle LF/CR relatively gracefully, and will use whatever is in the file without modifying them. Is this a bug, or should it be changed in Obsidian?
