Insert attachment modal in Pop-out Windows

Steps to reproduce

Haven’t tested this on Mac, yet; I’ll update this when I do.

  1. Open a note in a Pop-out Window
  2. Using the Command Palette, attempt to “Insert Attachment”

Expected result

The File Explorer modal should pop up to select said file.

Actual result

Nothing happens. The File Explorer modal doesn’t pop up in the Pop-out Window or the main window.
