  • Operating system: Windows
  • Obsidian version: v0.6.2
  • Using custom CSS: obsidian-roam, default theme has the same effect.

Additional information

It’ll also be nice to be able to scroll if there is too much text on the slide, maybe I should but this as a feature request or another bug report?


Not sure how much is this related but it doesn’t render on preview through mouse hover either.

ok, I’ll move to feature request for now.

No sure how hard it will be. I would recommend using the remarkjs to compile “Presentation” , when anyone try to upgrade this function.

The same issue exists for mermaid source as well. Should this feature request be generalized, or should I open up a new one?

We will improve this in a future release!
