Steps to reproduce
Write some text with a footnote reference, and add a two-paragraph footnote. Apparently the needed indentation for the 2nd paragraph is 4 spaces which will show in edit mode as a red “code block”. In preview mode, it is shown correctly.
A restaurant is represented by the Unicode sequence U+1F374,U+FE0E[^1] [^1]: U+FE0E is the Unicode variant selector for "text style" (so _not_ emoji style), but it is not recognized by all browsers. It is appended to the original character without any whitespace. U+FE0F is the variant selector for "emoji style". It would change above "🅿" to a "🅿️".
If “pseudo-WYSIWYG” must be, then this should also been shown as part of the footnote (i.e., indented and smaller font). Preview mode apparently handles it correctly:
For me, the sudden “jump” to a pseudo-WYSIWYG “footnote representation” in the editor is distracting enough, but having the 2nd paragraph suddenly shown in monospaced red totally confuses and leads to interruption of thought/writing flow. You start maximizing Obsidian, opening another window in preview mode, all just to check if it will be rendered okay …
- Operating system: Linux Mint 20.1/Cinnamon
- Obsidian version: 0.12.3, installer 0.12.3
This issue is surely related to auto-formatting the “4-space-indent code blocks”.
