# Title

Expected result

Since --- must not have an empty line above, this is a problematic Markdown file. So I expected one of two things:

  1. The frontmatter is not acknowledged as such and so it is rendered in text mode;
  2. The top empty line is ignored and the frontmatter is rendered with the new properties interface.

Actual result

  • The frontmatter lines are hidden;
  • The editor shows line 1 followed by line 5;
  • I cannot access line 1 with the cursor.
  • The only way to solve it is by going into Source Mode.
