Unnecessary extra space before list character

Steps to reproduce

This bug seems to only affect Obsidian vaults which are stored in iCloud. I have one vault in the “Obsidian”-app-folder of iCloud and one in my “Documents”-folder which is synced with iCloud. The bug does not occur in the local Help vault.

  1. Create a bulletpoint or numbered list in a note.
  2. Indent a list item (the number of indented items doesn’t matter).
  3. Unindent the next list item (the number of unindented items doesn’t matter).

Expected result

There shouldn’t be an extra space before the list character.

Actual result

There is an extra space before the list character (for example - or 3.).

Fixed unindent always keeps one extra space when use tabs is turned off.


Thank you, this seems to be my issue. I have “use tabs” turned off indeed.
I’m not an Insider, so I guess I have to wait until this updates is released publicly…

Thank you!
