Automatically make pane to preview mode if inactive for better visualization

Inspired by outliner app like Dynalist. When a bullet list is inactive, it renders the text/syntax. So I think, it’ll be useful when work with a lot of panes if panes in Obsidian behave like that.

There are definitely situations it would improve the experience, so I agree that it would be nice to have. But I also think sometimes you would want to turn this off since it might interfere with the ability to click your cursor to exactly where you wanted it when editing brackets, asterisks, equals signs, etc. for formatting.

This isn’t to say there wouldn’t be a good way to implement it. We shall see when WYSIWYG arrives. Nice idea.
