Switching to daily note doesn't respect default view mode (0.8.13)

Steps to reproduce

  1. Set default view mode to “Preview”
  2. Open daily note (either hotkey or sidebar button)

Expected result

The daily note should open in the mode I have set as default if it exists. Otherwise open in edit mode.

Actual result

The daily note always opens in edit mode, no matter what i have set.

Weird. I did a search in bug reports and nothing came up.
