PDF Viewer scroll is reset when moving tab off stack

Steps to reproduce

  • Add a pdf file into your Vault
  • Open the PDF and scroll down to any page
  • Create a note and open it in the same Tab Stack
  • Drag the PDF off the tab stack to split the view between the Note and the PDF (horizontally/vertically, irrelevant)

Expected result

PDF Viewer should retain the scroll progress / Currently Viewed Page of PDF when it’s moved off the stack

Actual result

PDF Viewer is reset, scrolling all the way up
