Cells don't wrap while editing markdown tables

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a 2 column table in markdown
  2. Fill in the header
  3. Paste an extremely long line of text into any of the body cells

Expected result

The text will wrap to the next line (making it easier to see and edit) in editing mode

Actual result

The text runs very far to the right and requires lots of scrolling to edit text beyond what’s initially visible.


  • Operating system: windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.6.7
  • Using custom CSS: no

Additional information


This should be better in 0.7.

When is 0.7 coming out?

It’s available for insiders this week. If everything goes well (no major bugs), next week for everybody.


Just wanted to let you know that I am experiencing this bug with Obsidian 0.7.6 on macOS. It happens with the default theme and also with a custom CSS (Traffic Lights). Thanks

Yuup. This bug seems to continue to persist. Using v0.11.13.

We changed this along the way. Text is not supposed to automatically wrap for tables in the editor.
