Settings: Fold Indent w/out Fold Header Shows Fold Arrow Next to Headers

Steps to reproduce

  1. Verify that in Obsidian’s “Editor” settings “Fold Indent” is enabled & “Fold Heading” is disabled.
  2. Create a note with a heading.

Expected result

I expected to see no visual hint that the header is able to be folded.

Actual result

I was given a visual clue that the header was able to be folded.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.9.2

Additional information

The downward arrow does not function. The bug is visual only.

What happens after you close and reopen the page?

That fixes it.

Either navigating away from the page & coming back or a manual refresh [CTRL + R] fixes it.

It seems that it only behaves this way on the first note you create after you set your settings so that heading folding is off & indent folding is on.

Personally I always have both on, but while experimenting I noticed the temporary visual bug.
