    The one thing that immediately comes to my mind is that you need an extension in order to be able to use a .vimrc. I also don't think you can use any vim plugins.

  • Do Vim Snippets work in Obsidian?
    2 projects | | 24 Oct 2021
    Obsidian's Vim functionality is just using whatever is available to the codemirror editor, it doesn't actually have all of the features of Vim. It's possible to get a plugin which allows for loading a .vimrc but again, the supported functionality is limited (i.e. there are lots of vim settings and features that do not work despite being valid in a regular .vimrc). It's not hard to find an example of this either; in actual Vim the movement dj will delete the current line and also the line below it. In Obsidian with Vim features enabled, it will only delete the current line. This is a simple example that has nothing to do with getting snippets working, but it is indicative that the actual Vim text editor and the Vim features available to Obsidian are not the same.
