Tab within Bulleted Text Indents the Bullet plus Children

In the quest for improved Outliner features in Obsidian, I’m creating a more atomic request for this feature which hopefully, on its own, is less complicated to implement, but still provides significant benefit to users.

Use case or problem

Currently, if you tab within the text of a bullet, it creates a tab within the text, which is not very useful (I don’t think I’ve ever personally needed an actual tab within a bullet).

Proposed solution

  • If your cursor position is anywhere on the line or within the text of a bulleted item, pressing tab will indent that bullet along with the children.
