  2. Click into a cell + if you scroll the padding increases
  3. Sheet’s on fire, yo:

Additional information

Here’s a quick fix for my issue:

 table td .cm-content.cm-lineWrapping {
    padding-top: 0px !important;
    padding-bottom: 0px !important;

I don’t understand what you’re doing. Can you post a screen recording of this happening in the sandbox vault?

This has happened to me and turns out it’s because of my CSS snippet. I organize by personal customized CSS on multiple files, so I first activate/deactivate a CSS to see if the issue remains. Once I’ve allocated the file, I comment/uncomment a block to see if it causes issues. You should try that first.

Hey @WhiteNoise, I’ve found the culprit:
It’s the Typewriter Scroll Obsidian Plugin.
After I’ve deactivated the plugin, it worked again.
People already have reported the issue.
It’s seems to be an issue with the newly implemented Table View.

Anyway, here’s the video you’ve requested:

It seems like the project is abandoned and loved by thousands of obsidian users. It would be great if you/the Obsidian devs would take over the development. :slight_smile:

@hello_p0p You can use the Scroll Offset plugin as an alternative to Typewriter Scroll. I use that and don’t have a problem with table cells.

I’ll give it a try, thanks!
