Community plugins: for bugs, please first try updating all your plugins to latest. If still not fixed, please try to make the issue happen in the Sandbox Vault or disable community plugins.

Additional information

I suspect that the fault lies fundamentally with Obsidian’s Chromium-based rendering backend, in which case Obsidian devs might not be able to realistically do much about it.

You should kindly file a separate bug report for each issue. Please try to search before posting because it’s likely that some have already been reported.

These were relatively minor typesetting issues that seem interrelated, so rather than spending the time to open a dozen bug reports I thought I’d just submit one with a test file attached. That seemed like a more sensible approach tbh.
