Formatting of copied text

What I’m trying to do

Obsidian allows me to create beautiful bulleted lists by using either the - or * symbols followed by a space. However, when copying these lists to my clipboard, Obsidian converts the bullets to - symbols. I would like these copied as * symbols instead.

Why? When I paste my list into certain applications, the - symbols are interpreted as a negative comment.

Is there a way to change the default behavior for how bullets are copied?

I can’t reproduce this. How do you copy your lists, and which applications transform the pasted results?
