Change bullet type automatically based on first character

When I have a certain type of bullet point, let’s say numbered bullet point, but I want a sub-bullet point to be a star bullet, if I hit enter and tab, it keeps the original bullet point type. If I type star in, it doesn’t automatically convert that bullet point to a different bullet point. This is the behavior on notion, and it’s really convenient. Anyone know if there’s a different way to do it?

Things I have tried

What I’m trying to do

As far as I know, I’ve not seen any change of the actual list indicator, -, + or *, into various icons. But I’m rather new to Obsidian, so maybe some plugin respect that (it sure would be kind of nice).

However, I’m using Minimal theme, and it has got task decoration, which allows your bullet points to be all kind of icons. See Checklists - Minimal Documentation


I’m not aware of any way to do this, sorry.
