SpellCheck on partially bolded/italicized words

Steps to reproduce

Partially bolding or italicizing a word such as:


Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]

Yes followed the steps as above. I am new to Obsidian so i don’t have any themes, community plugins, or any optional features turned on.

Expected result

Words with bolded letters (i.e. marking the letters that are part of an acronym) should be spellchecked as though the * markdown characters are not present.

Actual result

Spellcheck marks either the entire word, or part of the word as misspelled.

This is supported in apps such as Pages, so I would like support for it in Obsidian as well, although I recognize this is a very niche use case and is easily ignored.

Here, I bold the first letter when expanding an acronym.

I enjoy Obsidian very much, thank you developers.
