'<<' in shell codeblock breaks formatting (or `>>`)

Steps to reproduce

  • create a new document with the following content:

- list:
```shell
cat << EOF > /tmp/file.txt
line 1
```
this line’s formatting gets broken

  • indent all content between and including the ‘```’ characteres.

Expected result

The formatting of the last line “this line’s formatting gets broken” should not change

Actual result

The formatting of the last line “this line’s formatting gets broken” did change.
If one of the ‘<’ characters is removed, the formatting behaves as expected.

upstream report

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create note with two code blocks (see attachment for full test note)
    obsidian-bugs-bash<<EOF.md (290 Bytes)

1.1.

cat <<EOF
Line 1
Line 2
EOF

1.2.

echo test
  1. Put first code block inside quote block. Now formatting in edit mode is broken.
  2. Add any non-letter character between << and EOF e.g. <<-EOF. Now formatting should be fine.

Expected result

Intended code block with <<text shouldn’t break formatting for further code blocks inside editor mode.

Actual result

Code blocks after <<text inside quoted code block will be displayed as plain text inside editor mode, it will be fine in reading mode.
