I am trying to set org-hide-emphasis-markers to t but when I do so the headers are messed up

With org-hide-emphasis-markers disabled

* A
** B
*** C
**** D

With org-hide-emphasis-markers enabled

* A
** B
* C    <- Bold asterisk
** D  <- Bold 2 asterisks

Am I missing something in the configuration?

    It worked for me until very recently, so I think it is a bug. It is mentioned on the org-mode mailing list too: 1, 2, and maybe 3 – amitp Dec 3 '17 at 17:41
  • Try updating your org-mode; the update dated 20171205 seems to have fixed this problem for me. – amitp Dec 6 '17 at 22:39
