I don’t know whether this is a setting I’ve changed, or something got updated in Obsidian, so I’m asking here in case someone has noticed this too.
In the past (like a week ago?) when I mark a task as migrated (so from - [ ] to - [>]), the preview mode would display those task with a little square box with a right-pointing arrow coming out of it.
Now, all migrated tasks are treated like completed tasks (they are just checked tick boxes).
Does anyone know what has changed?
Seems you can put almost anything except whitespace in between the
[ ] to make it checkmarked.
Interesting: If you put
- [→] or many other Unicode symbols in there like
- [💩], it still shows the character. So probably again one of these
[A-Za-z0-9] hard-coded thingies. Tsk. We do have more than ASCII these days …
Using Obsidian 0.12.3 on Linux.
The thing is, putting a dash in between [ ] in the past would display as a right arrow coming out of a box and not a check box. Which is why I’m wondering whether something has changed.
Were you using the slated plugin and disabled it? Slated did some changes to how these are rendered.
As an alternative, you could check out death_au‘s CSS snippets (checkboxes are at the bottom): GitHub - deathau/obsidian-snippets
I haven’t updated the Slated plugin since they changed the feature to “moving” tasks instead of “copying” tasks to a new daily note.
But your suggestion for the css snippets was great - that fixed my issue.
