Tags from Metada Do Not Show Up in Windows 11 Reader View But Do Appear in iPhone Version

Once you’ve done the above, delete everything above this line.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open a new database in PC Obsidian

  2. Toggle off “Show frontmatter” in Editor

  3. Toggle off “Show inline title” in Appearance/Advanced

  4. Create a new note named TEST with the following metadata (note - there is a space before each of the tag names that I typed below but they are not showing up in the bug report screen. See pics for how it should look):

    ---
    Title: TEST
    Date: 2023-01-03
    Tags:
     apples
     peaches
     pumpkin
     pie
    ---
    
  5. Switch to reader/preview mode. Tags will not show up

  6. Repeat steps 1-5 above in iPhone. Tags will show up.

Expected result

Tags should show up in the reader view in both the iPhone and PC versions of Obsidian
versions of the app, but the PC version is not working

Actual result

The PC version is blank - no tags

Additional information




You need to mark the metadata block you posted as code in your forum post to preserve the indentation (Markdown collapses neighboring spaces and newlines in normal text). To do that, add a line of 3 backticks (```) before and after it. You’ll also need to put a blank line before and after those to mark it as separate from the blocks before and after it.

Because the code block is part of a list item, you’ll also need to indent the whole thing (the backticks and everything between them) and extra 4 spaces to indicate it is part of the preceding list item (you could indent them by an extra 1 tab instead, but you can’t type tabs in web forms).

Is this the same for showing in Reddit?

If you’re looking for help on Reddit and someone or the rules requests your debug info, then yes.

Also, how do I edit my post to fix this issue?

Use the pencil icon at the bottom of your post (it might be hidden behind three dots). If you don’t have a pencil icon you might me too new to the forum to have edit permissions. In that case, I can edit it for you if you like.

  1. I don’t have a pencil. It would be great if you could fix that for me. Thank you!
  2. How do I know if my bug report gets evaluated?

I added the code block and your debug info to the post. The bug report template has a comment above “- Debug info:” that explains it, so you can use that as a reminder if you need to post any other bugs.

You’ll know the bug has been evaluated when the developers (or more likely their representative WhiteNoise) comment on the thread, or when someone else comments to explain why it’s not a bug.

Thank you for your help!
