Text + linebreak + two dashes is formatted like heading?

Hey, i am currently exploring Obsidian and i noticed, when it type some text, followed by a new line followed by two dashes it is formatted like a heading.

So for example:


Some more text

looks like this:

When i tried this in another online markdown editor, i didnt see any highlighting of the text.

Is there anything i am missing?

That’s a standard setext-style header:

Setext-style headers are “underlined” using equal signs (for first-level headers) and dashes (for second-level headers). For example:

This is an H1

This is an H2
