Folding: when the cursor being moved with right and left arrows reaches the 3 dots, the contents unfold

This is my 3rd out of 3 bug reports regarding folding.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Sandbox vault and [[Start Here]] note.
  2. Use Fold all headings and lists command
  3. In live preview mode, place the cursor somewhere in the first folder header.
  4. Press right arrow as many times as needed to go to the end of the line.

Expected result

The cursor goes to the next line and the folded contents don’t unfold.

Actual result

When the cursor reaches 3 dots, the contents below will unfold.

Additional information

The same happens if you press left arrow to go to the end of the line above. As soon as you reach the 3 dots with your left arrow presses, the section unfolds.

Thanks this is currently intentional.

If you are past the 3 dots you can assume that the cursor is at the end of the folded section and cursor navigation happens accordingly including unfolding because the cursor moved within the folded section
