AH, I must have been tired, as when I reviewed those release notes I did not see it hanging on it’s lonesome at the bottom of the list. Thanks for that pointer and I’m sorry for my carelessness.
The behavior is now as expected and documented, but ONLY after I changed the hot key assignment. I had changed it by replacing one of the keys with CTL (rather than ALT) and that did not help. I gave up there as I assumed that if one change did not help others would not either. In fact, I tried changing it to ALT + SHFT+ H, as suggested by akaalias, and magically it now works as advertised. In addition, it was wrapping with three === and now is using two == as it should.
This leaves the question of why I had to change the hot key assignment at all. And why others have the same problem. If it were just me, it could be easily explained by some hot key conflict, but I’m not sure how to find out what the conflict might be. In the hot key section of the Obsidian settings, if you set up a conflict it highlights both conflicting assignments in red. However, that does not rule out conflicts with other things. And it is not just me who has this problem. After all, akaalias had the problem and offered the work around. I’m currently fishing around for some app that will list ALL hotkey assignments and possibly highlight conflicts.
My installer version is: 0.8.1.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I could have worked around it forever, but it is nice to close the loop, as it were, and now we can all sleep soundly free of nightly torments by renegade gangs of highlights. Since others are having the same problem, it is apparently a real one. Should you wish me to test something toward the goal of fixing this, I’ll be happy to do what I can.
