Searching within notes doesn't highlight results inside collapsed blocks

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new note
  2. Add the following Markdown:
Test test

# Some heading


# Another heading

  1. Collapse Some heading
  2. Search keyword
  3. The heading the search result is under stays collapsed, and you can’t find the search result.

Expected result

The heading should expand and the search term should be highlighted and visible in the note.

Actual result

It’s invisible and it’s unclear that the search was actually successful.
