Inconsistent cursor position before nested list bullets

Steps to reproduce

Create a new note with the following content:

- a
- b
- c
    - d

Do the following:

  1. Open the note in Live Preview mode.
  2. Place the cursor before the dash on the “a” or “b” lines.
    • Behavior: the cursor is right before the dash - see Picture 1.
  3. Do the same for the “c” line (e.g. push the down arrow button).
    • Behavior: the cursor is farther away from the dash - see Picture 2.

It looks like this is only the case if the line in question is a parent to a nested list below it.

Note: The “b” line behaves similarly.
