Minimise block swallows trailing whitespace

Once you’ve done the above, delete everything above this line.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open new note
  2. Create two H1 headings, one above the other, with one line between (with content or not)
  3. Minimise (toggle hidden) the top heading, which should hide the whitespace/content between the two
  4. Add a new line after the minimised content
  5. Reveal then re-minimise the top heading
  6. Notice the whitespace/content added under the initially minimised content is now hidden.

Expected result

Additional whitespace below the hidden / minimised heading will not be toggled to hidden when content is hidden

Actual result

Any additional hidden content (whether added after the initial content is hidden or not) is ‘swallowed’ by re-toggling the display of the initial content

Additional information

Can provide video if the above isn’t sufficient, though it’s a bit of extra effort.

I tried this in sandbox vault and had same issue exactly.

Not a bug, this is a how it works. There is a FR about not capturing the blanklines before a new header.
