What exactly is a "File Path or Name"?
Each Obsidian note is just a file in the file system. When Actions for Obsidian asks for a "File Path or Name", it expects the full file path starting at the root of the vault (i.e., its root folder).
A few examples:
- A note named "This is fine!" in a folder "No really": its full file path would be
/No really/This is fine!.md.
- A note named "The best, surely" placed in the root folder: its full file path would be
/The best, surely.md.
Fortunately, the Shortcuts actions normalize your input and will do their best to make sure it is well-formed, so you can omit both the leading
/ and the trailing file extension
.md if you like. In the examples above, this would mean that you could enter
No really/This is fine! and
The best, surely , respectively.
