Properties in document ignores Source

Steps to reproduce

  1. Enable Properties plugin
  2. Add property to a file (e.g. an alias)
  3. Pick “Source” as the Properties in document setting
  4. Open the same file in Reading mode

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

For properties to only be displayed in the Source mode

Actual result

Properties are still shown in the Reading mode. In fact, behaviour is identical to “Visible” setting

Additional information

I don’t understand you. Sorry.

Properties are not shown in reading view only if you select hidden.

This setting determines how properties are displayed in the editor.

Ah, i see, my bad. I don’t use Live Preview so i didn’t notice the difference between the Source and Visible, and assumed the setting affects both editing and reading
