[Bug] Occasionally editor chaos when messing with HTML tags

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Obsidian and a file.

  2. Input an html tag.

  3. Keep messing with it by repeatedly hitting enter and backspace so the cursor jumps around between the end of the tag and a new line.

  4. With some luck… See the bug happen.

Expected result

Nothing should go wrong, apparently.

Actual result

…See the video I attached below.


  • Operating system: Android 11 (OneUI 3.1), on Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
  • Version: Obsidian Mobile Insider v1.2.0 (Build 50)
  • Debug info: Not accessible cuz mobile.

Additional information

All testings are done in a new vault with no themes, no snippets, safe mode on.
I think this bug has been there for a pretty long time now (If I recall it correctly, since the release of LP on mobile)…
This only happens occasionally, but is kinda annoying when it actually happens.
Also, there’s potential data loss risk, maybe…?

Console Error:

This marks that the bug is now in effect.
