Obsidian automatically expands a list in "Reading mode" screen, when I edit the list in "Source mode" screen

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a list with sub-items.
  2. Split a screen: one with “Reading mode”, second width “Source mode”.
  3. In “Reading mode” screen collapse the list.
  4. Do any changes with list in “Source mode” screen.

Starting point: reading mode - left | source mode - right. I’ll type ‘X’ near ‘List item 1’

Expected result

The list in “Reading mode” is collapsed.

Actual result

The list in “Reading mode” is expanded.

Additional information

If you turn off “Reading mode” before making changes to the list, make changes, and then turn it back on, everything works fine. This bug appears only if you make list changes during “Reading mode” screen is on.


I got it. The bug report is already exist and I didn’t found it, my bad. But problem exists from 2021 and it is still not solved. This is a disappointing.
