Foldable callouts don't collapse

Once you’ve done the above, delete everything above this line.

Steps to reproduce

Create a foldable callout exactly as in the documentation:

[!faq] - Are callouts foldable?

More text here, body of callout.


Expected result

So that should collapse by default but does nothing. The fold arrow at the end is also not showing, which is perhaps the problem.

Actual result

The callout just sits there and there is no fold capability, despite trying to click around in invisible places in case of something I can’t see.
I’m actually just exploring Obsidian, working through the docs. My theme is default.
version 1.5.12

Additional information

I tried simply editing the sandbox vault callout “Warning” like this, merely adding a space and a dash after the ], and also trying it with some text after the dash. No change in the problem.
( Incidentally, the text in the docs says use [!note] but forgets the > before the [. )

Maybe a Linux issue? Seems fine on macOS (Obsidian v.1.6.2, installer v1.5.8).

Oh dear. You could well be correct. Wait and see if someone with windows tries it as well.

At least in the snippet above, there’s a space before the - in your callout. That would prevent it from folding.
