Headings not being recognised

Steps to reproduce

If you type fairly fast “## any text” the editor, for some uncanny reasons, will not recognise the "### " as heading. See video:


Used sandbox vault.

Moved to help for not following the BR template
If you restart obsidian, do the headings work?

No! That’s why this is boggling me so much… And it’s a bug. I didn’t respected the form because honestly these are days really busy for me and I can’t afford wasting too much times on forums.

Hope this does not offend you, I think what I presented explain all there’s to explain.

Thank’s and sorry.

Attach a copy of file that doesn’t work.

I believe you are somehow inputting some weird character.

Well that explains it… But why does this happen?

I mean, I’m just pressing # followed by spacebar… On my keyboard in order to produce “#” I have to press alt + button next to enter key, perhaps if I type fast enough the computer instead of taking as input just the spacebar after I typed the #, it takes alt+spacebar? And that alt+space bar produce that character?

How can I get a confirmation of this? What app did you used?


Edit: I confirm, if I type alt+spacebar then the problem is fully reproduced.

I see you figured it out, and it’s because of your keyboard layout/config.

Alternatively if this remains a problem, you can map “Toggle heading”, or “Set as heading 1, 2, 3”, etc. to hotkeys.
