100% CPU usage

Steps to reproduce

Create a note and paste this content

 AU$250 -> US$181.42

Expected result

CPU usage for the process does not change

Actual result

The only way to reset CPU usage is to remove text and restart the app.


  • Operating system: MacOS 10.15.5
  • Obsidian version: 0.7.4

Additional information

Also interesting to note that the text is highlighted

We had some fixes regarding a similar issue.

Let me know if you have this problem with 0.7.6.

PS: the text is highlighted because $ab + bc$ is the math notation.


Hi there!

I had the same issue today running 0.7.4 but once I installed 0.7.6 and reloaded, CPU usage is fine. I’ve attached a screenshot for each version and CPU usage to illustrate.
