Bullet points not recognized if tab size is changed

As above, the dashes do not become bullets.

Steps to reproduce

In live mode, set tab space setting (in Editor) to anything but 4 or 2, such as 3. Then go to a note and try to write nested bullet points using tab key.


Steps to reproduce

When creating lists, bullets and checkboxes only convert to their respective icon on the first level. Subsequent levels are still rendered in plain text. The strikethrough formatting for checked boxes is also absent in sublevels.

Read View (expected behavior)

Live Preview (actual behavior)

Lists still behave normally in all other respects - for instance, I can still check a checkbox via keystroke - so Obsidian still recognizes it as a list item. It just doesn’t render in Live Preview.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.13.10

I am using the default theme (with no additional CSS snippets).

I can’t reproduce. post the exact source of that document.

Here is an example.md with the same problem.

It only happens if tab size in not 4

will be fixed in 0.13.15
