Mobile toolbar not visible on split screen view (slide over)

Similar to the stage manager mode hiding the same the toolbar is hidden when using split mode. (And if you are using Obsidian to take notes, the sidebar is critical.)

The attached screenshot is from a brand new vault, no plugins, themes or snippets applied.

Steps to reproduce

  1. On iPad, open Obsidian
  2. Click on the 3 dots at the top of the screen and select “Slide Over”
  3. Using the software keyboard, attempt to access the toolbar.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y]

Yes. This is the latest obsidian on an M1 iPad Pro 12"

Expected result

I expect to see the mobile toolbar.

Actual result

I see the tiniest fraction of the top of the mobile toolbar.

Additional information

This is a BIG issue that has been around for ages and REALLY needs to be fixed ASAP.

Same issue as [Bug] Mobile toolbar cut off while using Stage Manager, which… why is it locked since it is still not fixed? Can we merge that in here and get this addressed?

The mobile toolbar gets cut off while using Stage Manager on iPadOS. This does not happen if app is in fullscreen mode.
