Cursor position lost after drag-and-dropping image to note

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a note with multiple paragraphs.
  2. Drag and drop an image from Obsidian’s file browser at the end of the last paragraph.

Expected result

After the image is inserted, the cursor stays after the newly inserted note, at the end of the note.

Actual result

The cursor appears at the very beginning of the note.
