Math display reacting incorrectly to $ $ delimiters

Steps to reproduce

Take a math formula: $x+y = 5$. ← This should render properly.
However, adding a space in the beginning or end will cause Obsidian to not consider this a formula anymore: $ x+y = 5 $ ← This will not be parsed as a formula.

I would understand why would the previous expression not be parsed as a formula in its final state, but, during typing $x+y = 5$ the interpreter constantly (for every space) switches from considering it a formula to not considering it a formula for each arising space. This messes up any additional command that would be using if we are inside a formula, and is visually unappealing.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]

Yes :slight_smile:

Expected result

Previously both expressions would render as math formulas. Now it’s not the case.

I don’t think this will be considered a bug, but you could have a look here (and the links in this post):
