Paste the following into Obsidian:
7. Thought 8. Thought 1. Sub (1 Tab) 2. Sub (1 Tab) 9. Thought *** 777. Thought 778. Thought 1. Sub (1 Tab) 2. Sub (1 Tab) 779. Thought *** 777. Thought 778. Thought 1. Sub (2 Tabs) 2. Sub (2 Tabs) 779. Thought
The “Sub”-items in the second list should be displayed as sub items in the list in preview mode (
778. a) 778. b)), since they are indented with one tab like the items in the first list.
They are treated as a continuation of the list, so the first sub element becomes 779 instead of 778.a. So lists with numbers with 3 or more digits don’t work as expected.
If I set the number of spaces for one tab to 8 in the settings, the problem is solved. But it can still be considered a bug that the edit mode makes you think it works with 4 spaces.
