I really appreciate Obsidian’s styling of incomplete
- [ ]
Sometimes, though, I like to add a different character inside the square brackets to something that is in progress, like this:
But Obsidian seems to interpret any string “- [.]” as a completed checkbox, where . is any character. So when I unfocus from the checkbox, - [~] and - [X] are indistinguishable.
Can anyone help me understand how this behavior is implemented by Obsidian?
My first thought was to write a custom CSS snippet for checkboxes. But the examples I’ve seen depend on the :checked state. It seems that Obsidian is reading any string “- [.]” as input[type=checkbox]:checked. So the issue seems to be pre-CSS in nature.
