See active file in Obsidian sidebar

Obsidian logo

I have been using Obsidian for more than 6 months now.

Often I have to create multiple notes with same name in various location.

That makes it difficult to see where is the currently open / active file is located.

When I searched I couldn’t find any solution that works automatically and highlights the current active file in real-time.

But this hotkey hack is time saver.

Go to Settings > Hotkeys > Files: Reveal current file in navigation

And set your hotkey.

Let me know if you find a better solution.
