Completed task check missing in exported PDFs

EDIT: after filing this bug, I noticed that only Sumatra PDF viewer has a problem rendering the checkbox (including the last release). This indicates that the problem may not be with Obsidian. Feel free to graveyard the bug in that case.

Steps to reproduce

  • Create a note with a completed task in it (e.g. * [x] Done)
  • Export the note to PDF

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]

Yes. Reproducible in a brand new vault with no snippets or plug-ins.

Expected result

Check mark visible in the PDF.
