- In source mode, add a property and a YAML comment to the frontmatter, like such:
--- tags: # comment ---
- Exit source mode and go back into source mode. Nothing will have changed.
- Exit source mode and change the property by adding a value, such as a tag.
- Switch back into source mode
Like in previous Obsidian versions, the comment should still be in the frontmatter
The YAML comment has disappeared from the frontmatter

This is a very recent bug. A few minor versions/weeks ago, I am very confident this wasn’t a problem yet.
The reason this bug is significant is that I need to add comments to the frontmatter to tell the Zotero integration plugin to “persist” my custom metadata. Thereby, it breaks the workflow of a number of academics like myself. More broadly, this bug may break the functionality of a number of plugins that rely on YAML comments to add additional information to the frontmatter.
I would be very grateful for a fix
