"Show frontmatter" setting not working on Mobile version

Actual result

  • Expected Result: If in options/editor/Show frontmatter is turned off - I expect it to completely hide the Frontmatter section in Reading View (like it does on the desktop version on macOS)

  • What actually happened:

  1. If “Show frontmatter” is turned OFF - I still can see the “Metadata” block in Reading View. On the desktop version it’s hidden.
  2. If “Show frontmatter” is turned ON - I see it twice. (default Metadata block + frontmatter section ) (both with same data)
  • I like to add Metadata to a note - but I don’t want to see it. Especially on the small screen of my phone.
