Indentation guides alignment in Live Preview

Steps to reproduce

  • The bug happens with indentation guides enabled in the editor settings.
  • It happens with the defualt theme, and every other theme.
  • It was present before the 1.0 update and after it.
  • It happens with editor mode or preview mode, although it’s more noticeable in preview mode.
  • You just need to enable folding for bullet points and headings then create a list where certain bullet points are indented.

Expected result

I expect the indentation guide (the vertical line between two bulletpoints) to be correctly aligned with the circular bulletpoint above it and below it.

Actual result

The indentation guide is misaligned. It’s either shifted to the right (in edit mode) or to the left (in preview mode). And it’s more noticeable in preview mode.
As you can see here. This is edit mode:

And this is preview mode:

And this is the default theme in preview mode, with no plugins:
