Git ignoring .gitignore fix

Sometimes Git will just appear to “ignore” an entry in .gitignore, usually right after a new entry has been added to the ignore file, or an updated ignorefile has been pulled down from a remote repo.

tl;dr this is the solution:
Bash git update-index --assume-unchanged path/to/file

This was specifically a problem with the .obsidian/workspace file after I added it to the top-level ignorefile in Knowledgebase.
