Embedding a Callout removes space below Callout title

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Sandbox Vault
  2. Create a Callout
  3. Embed that Callout

Expected result

I would expect the space below the Callout title to be the same when I embed it.

Actual result

This happens in Live Preview and Reading View.


  • Operating system: Windows 10


The space between the callout and text also be wrongly removed in embed markdown block of Live preview mode.


Indeed, it happens to me when embedding a note that has various callouts one after the other; they all run into each other without spaces in between.


Note with callouts:

Note with embedded section:

I’ve ignored it since I’m more focused on the information but then I saw this post, so I’ve added another example on how it can look off.

Hi, I also have come to this issue and wrote a small snippet as a workaround.

.inline-embed .markdown-embed-content .callout-content p {
  margin-top: 1em !important;

I also added another small fix to realign the small link button which you can add:

.embed-title.markdown-embed-title:empty {
  display: none;

I can’t edit my previous reply for some reason. Here is a workaround that kinda works for the missing space between callouts:

.markdown-source-view.mod-cm6 .callout {
  margin-bottom: 1em;

I took screenshots and wrote this up before finding this report, so might as well post it:

Steps to reproduce

  1. In the Sandbox, create noteA with this content:
Clap of thunder rope's end red ensign Barbary Coast broadside ye Plate Fleet.

> [!example] Title
> Pirates of the Obsidian!

Careen loot driver scurvy maroon take a caulk barque topgallant squiffy.
  1. Create noteB with this content:
Chase guns strike colors fluke barque Sea Legs boom maroon code of sutler gun.


Piracy fire in the parley shrouds gangway black jack belay American Main matey Letter of Marque.

Expected result

The margins and paddings of the original callout is maintained if embedded.

Actual result

  • In Live Preview, the callout-content looses its padding and the entire callout looses its bottom margin.

  • In Reading view, only the callout-content is loosing the padding.

Additional information

I don’t know if this is the best approach, but these snippets appear to keep the proper margin and padding for embedded callouts.

.inline-embed .markdown-embed-content .callout {
    margin-block-end: var(--p-spacing);

.inline-embed .markdown-embed-content .callout-content > p:first-child {
    margin-top: var(--p-spacing);
