Obsidian Properties (Markdown Frontmatter Enhanced)

Learn how to use Obsidian properties, an enhanced version of Markdown frontmatter.

The most recent release of Obsidian allows you to view your Markdown YAML frontmatter as property fields.

This is a huge unlock for anyone who uses Obsidian properties for publishing or filtering with the DataView plugin.

Adding Properties To A Note

You can add properties to a note in one of two ways:

  • Click "+ Add property"
  • Use the command palette and choose "Add file property"
  • Use the keyboard shortcut "CMD + ;" (Mac) or "Ctrl + ;" (Windows)

I love how easy this update makes it to add properties to notes, especially since I use Obsidian to publish my notes to my website.
