"Open in new window" does not apply "Zoom Level" setting

Steps to reproduce

  1. Change the Appearance > Advanced > Zoom Level setting to something other than the default
  2. Open a note in a new window

Expected result

I expect that the new window has the same zoom level as the main app window.

Actual result

The new window has the default 100% zoom, regardless of the “Zoom Level” setting.

Additional information

Looking at the CSS in the popout window, I think this has something to do with the --zoom-factor variable in the body style. In the main app window, it is 1.57744, which makes sense with 158% zoom. In the popout window, it is 1.

I also attached a screen recording showing the difference, if that helps!

will be fixed 1.0.4
