I can’t reproduce. what is the exact source of your document. Attach the file here.

I have linked the document. If you unindent the 2 sub-points (select then Shift + Tab) it works fine. I have tested this in the help vault.

The problem is your unusual addition of whitespaces between the the bullet point and the text.
Instead of writing

- something

you write

-    something

For some reason, we don’t process it well.

I’m experiencing the exact same issue.

However, removing the extra spaces after the bullet character as per Parsing problems with Codeblock after a sublist item - #4 by WhiteNoise fixed this for me.

It was hard to tell that I had extra spaces after the dash, especially because I had copy-pasted content from Notion, not typed it out myself. I guess Notion adds extra spaces after the dash? Or something did. Not sure. :man_shrugging:

I’m on Arch Linux, Google Chrome 98.0.4758.80, and Obsidian v0.13.23.
