Indented text formatting changes in editor depending on whether below quote or not

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a note with the following content:
> Quote
	Indented text
  1. Notice that line 2 is formatted as a quote in editor and as code in preview
  2. Return to editor and insert a new line between line 1 and 2
  3. Notice that editor and preview now display the line as code

Expected result

Editor and preview to show identical formatting.

Actual result

Editor and preview show differing formatting depending on if a new line is present between the quote and the indented text.

Definitely some quirky behaviour in this and your other recent quote/list-related bug report.

That said, Markdown in general is quirky about paragraph formatting and new lines… it may be a good idea to provide a nice space between these kinds of “blocks” of text. Still, I’m sure Obsidian could parse these examples better.
