This is intended behavior.

I have meet the same problem. This bug causes mathematical formulas to render incorrectly.

Operating system: MacOs 12.0.1

What formula is rendering incorrectly? You are turning that line in a codeblock.

I think the tabs in the text should not indent a paragraph, but print spaces.

Tab key make the paragraph become a codeblock. I originally intended to use tab to jump to the placeholder in the latex formula.

Here is a related question:
Tab and Enter does not work/breaks the table in live preview and source mode · Issue #147 · tgrosinger/advanced-tables-obsidian (

I don’t think we ever had this functionality in base obsidian.

Another related thread asking the same thing (I think):

latex autocomplete

I have made a plugin to implement this function.
