Checklist with line breaks - Markdown rendering broken

Steps to reproduce

The text circled in red is missing in View mode. It appears in Live View mode.

Expected result

Here is the output of Preview on GitHub of the same text:

I would expect the same output in View mode as is shown in GitHub Preview mode.

Actual result

See steps to reproduce.


  • Operating system: MacOS 12.1 (M1 Mac)
  • Note that Theme did not matter (same results in both base shipped theme and downloaded theme)
  • Debug info:
    Obsidian version: v0.13.14
    Installer version: v0.13.14
    Login status: not logged in
    Insider build toggle: off
    Live preview: on
    Legacy editor: off
    Base theme: dark
    Community theme: Things
    Snippets enabled: 0
    Safe mode: off
    Plugins installed: 2
    Plugins enabled: 2
    1: Tasks
    2: Advanced URI

Additional information

Here is the raw Markdown that I used:

- [ ] Testing **checkbox**
A note with testing checkbox
- [ ] Another checkbox no following note
- [ ] Last checkbox with a note 
Last checkbox note
- [ ] Testing

works for me . post a screen recording of this happening in the help vault.

Seems to work in the Help vault, as you suggest. Why won’t it work properly in my vault? What is different?

I switched to the default theme and still does not work in my vault.

EDIT: Figured it out. The Community plugin “Tasks” is doing something to break the rendering. When I disable that plugin everything renders properly.
