I use ALT-drag to create links in my notes to local files or directories and it works well.
I'm trying to find a way to get Windows macros, like
to work in markdown links.
but these don't
file:///%USERPROFILE%/.config/joplin-desktop/resources file:///%%USERPROFILE%%/.config/joplin-desktop/resources file:///%25USERPROFILE%25/.config/joplin-desktop/resources
I'm not sure if the problem is related to encoding, macro expansion or something else.
%USERPROFILE%/.config/joplin-desktop/resources works at the command prompt and in FileExplorer.
