Steps to reproduce
Paste in the following text to Obsidian and see how it is formatted:
>>>Hello, >> >>Hello it is nice to meet you. >>>Could you explain why the sky is blue, please? I have always wondered why it is blue given that light from the sun is not very blue. >> >>Yes the sky is blue due to the scattering of blue light by our atmosphere resulting in it being the colour of light which you see when looking at the sky. > >Thank you for this explanation. That makes sense. I look forward to discussing other questions I have in the future.
It should be formatted as an easy to read conversation, but unfortunately Obsidian mutilates the result whereas VSCode, this forum’s markdown viewer(!), and commonmark display it perfectly.
This would be super useful to have fixed! I use this all the time. Thanks so much for considering this bug report and for developing Obsidian. It is an excellent app.
According to the commonmark spec JS library:
