Callouts lost of the vertical line and the enhaced color on the title


After several searches on this forum and on the internet, I can’t find an answer to my question.
So I hope you can help me

I don’t now if it’s from the new release of Obisdian v0.16.2 but i have lost the vertical line and the enhaced color of the title of my callouts block.

on the Obsidian Help

Now on my vault

I have already try to change

  • the base color scheme
  • the themes

Is it possible to restore the display as in the Obsidian help?

Thank you for your help

Yeah. That’s the breaking changes of obsidian v0.16.x. The callout now by default has similar background color for both title and content as well as removing the “vertical line” u r referring to.

U can definitely have it back but must work out the custom css. Most theme would likely follow the new convention moving forward.

I dont have a ready snippets for such thing, but u can do it so by targeting the following css elements

  • .callout-title
  • .callout-content

For each above, add border-left: 4px solid var(--callout-color)

.callout {
    border-left-width: 5px;
    padding: unset;
.callout-title {
    padding: 0.5em 1em;
    background-color: rgba(var(--callout-color), 0.1);
.callout-content {
    padding: 0.2em 1em;


Thank you !!!
