Steps to reproduce
After pasting text into Obsidian from a web source, selecting a block of that text behaves differently when using triple click vs click-and-pull
Triple clicking a block of text should select it and one should then be able to apply styling with a shortcut (e.g. CMD + B)
The inserted characters for styling (e.g. “**” for bold styling) connect the selected block of text with the next one, causing the styling to be applied to all subsequent text
- Operating system: Windows 10
pull to select, then apply styling
triple click to select, then apply styling
Thought I was the only one having this problem! Why does triple-click select the current line like it’s supposed to, AND then start on the next line down?
You’re right, this totally messes up styling.
I have double checked this issue and I discovered that this is actually the standard behavior among code editor. The rationale is that when you do heavy copy-pasting of lines/paragraphs retaining the carriage return (CR) helps. VScode and Notepad++ do the same.
I am going to close this issue.
Regarding the bug with bolding, follow this:
starting with 0.13.27 triple click will not select the new line.
