[Bug Report] Editor wonkiness with the symbol ✔︎

This bug occurs with v1.7.5 Beta (2021-11-17)

I'm restarting a writing project and using the symbol ✔︎ as an indicator for completing a section of the outline.
Not too sophisticated, but I'm not fancy. This problem is trivial, but you wanted reports. I might be off base, and the problem is evidence of my misunderstanding.

The ✔︎ symbol is placed in a note, then the editor is switched to a different zettel, and the symbol disappears until some edit is made. Weird and hard to isolate and reproduce.
I'm not sure when this behavior changed.

Here is a better example but a little different. When I add a checkmark (any edit will invoke this behavior), all the others disappear until the editor's focus is refreshed by looking at a different zettel. If an edit is made to the line with the invisible checkmark, the checkmark on that line only will reappear.

  • @Will interesting bug, thanks for the GIFs! Can you email me a demo file that doesn't show the ✔︎ mark when you visit it + instructions if I need to search for something (or not search at all) before I select the note + if you have "highlight search terms" enabled? Trying to narrow this down.

    I presume this also happens when you freshly open the app again?

  • The same happens with the ` character (which you usually use as a pair to mark code inline, for example). It's strange because you lose this edit when you open another note, just for the last paragraph.

  • @ralfzosel Thanks for pointing this out! Just so we're on the same page, can you give step-by-step instructions for me to reproduce your observation?

    I interpret it as: you enter a single ``` backtick in the bottommost/last paragraph, and the rest of the note switches the rendering of ✓ checkmarks?

  • @ctietze Sorry for confusing you. "The same happens" just meant: the edit vanishes too.

    I mark a word in the last paragraph with the mouse and hit the key for the backtick ones. Automatically, two backticks appear, one in front and another after the marked word. I go to another zettel and when I return to the first zettel, the backticks are gone.
