I’ve searched this online but I don’t think I’m wording it correctly. Thank you in advance for this it’s driving me nuts!
Maybe because you are pasting from an html source?
Or what do you mean “changes”? Changes from what to what? Can you post a screenshot?
If you want to paste without formatting, ctrl-shift-V should be the shortcut on Windows. Cmd-shift-V on MacOS I think.
To add to rigamarole’s answer: You can also right-click “paste as plain text”. Also, check the indentation of things you are pasting. If they are too indented compared to the content around them, I think Obsidian will interpret them as code, equivalent to putting text inside ` which it changes color.
Does any of this help?
Thank you for your help. Could you recommend any good resources that I could look this what I’m assuming is basic stuff? I would like the items in red to be the standard white.
Thank you in advance
It looks like you have spaces before your numbers. In Markdown, this causes a pre-formatted block. It’s red because that’s the color your CSS theme uses for pre-formatted blocks.
If you remove the space, it should turn back to regular text.
For a specific suggestion on how to follow rigmarole’s advice:
Try selecting the red-text area and using Shift+Tab to de-indent it.
Awesome, Thank you so much! I know it’s not a big deal but it was aggravating me. I’ll use Shift + Tab.
