Flash of unstyled content when scrolling in live preview

Steps to reproduce

  • Create a long-ish note.
  • Close the note.
  • Reopen the note.
  • Scroll down.

Expected result

I would expect the content to have been styled when it scrolls into view.

Actual result

For a fraction of a second, unstyled content is shown.

Additional information

This issue had been observable before, then it was fixed for some time, and now it’s back.

To be clear, we do not make the promise that there won’t be ever flashes of unstilled text.

That being said, there were no changes to this part of the code.
This may just be a complex page or maybe you just have an old computer or a combination of both.

Can you attach a copy of markdown of this page?
What are your computer specs exactly?

Also, download and reinstall obsidian.
