New Checkbox Items Are Pre-Checked

Describe the bug

When I am typing into a checklist, if the item which I am currently typing on is checked, then if a new line is created, this is checked too.

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. Create a checklist
    1. Type something into the first line
    1. Check the box
    1. Click at the end of the checked line
    1. Press enter (to create a new item)
    1. The new item is already checked

Expected behavior

I would expect that the behaviour here should be that any new checkbox item which is created should be unchecked as default. When I make a list of things to do and wish to add to it later, the new item I am adding is almost never already done. It seems as though it would often be relatively pointless to add something to a list if it was already checked (certainly in less than half of use cases - and I guess we are working on making this easiest in most cases)

Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS: macOS Big Sur and Windows 10
  • Device: MacBook Pro 2017 and Lenovo Thinkpad

Every new checkbox should be unchecked, even if they are created below a checked one.
