Things I have tried
What I’m trying to do
HI, I’m sure I’m doign something wrong, but I’ve just installed obsidian on a different mac and when I try to start a line with a dash (e.g. to create a checklist, or to create a bullet), the cursor jumps up to the line above and I can not get back to the line to complete the note or checklist - either by using the arrow keys or the mouse. It seems to work at the top of a document but not following other text.
So, more specifically, after typing some text, I start a new line, type ‘-’, type space, and at that point the cursor jumps to the line above and will not return to the line in question.
I’ve tried disabling all community plug ins and changing the theme.

However when using

The help vault works for me too.
My own vault however not:
That’s exactly what I was seeing, although at the moment it’s started to work after I switched to a new vault and switched back again.
You either set up some strange shortcuts or some plugin is creating this problem.
I haven’t changed any shortcuts as I just started using Obsidian and the issue also occurs without any plugins installed. The only thing I did was drag and drop a markdown export file of Notion into my vault. The issue seemed to have started after I did that.
