Turning Off Properties View Does Nothing

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create frontmatter properties.
  2. Disable properties view plugin.

Tested in sandbox vault on fresh install of Obsidian.

Expected result

Without the plugins view, I would expect frontmatter to be rendered as text in YAML format.

Actual result

Properties are still displayed using the new UI, the only difference when disabling is the removal of a space in the status bar (odd behavior, but it is the only thing I notice).


Obsidian version: v1.4.14
Installer version: v1.4.14
Operating system: Windows 10 Pro 10.0.22621
Login status: not logged in
Insider build toggle: off
Live preview: on
Legacy editor: off
Base theme: dark
Community theme: none
Snippets enabled: 0
Restricted mode: on


Additional Info

I am specifically looking for ways to quickly edit all of the properties in the document. I am a fan of the new UI, but I need the ability to edit the properties as text and import YAML directly.

Turning off the Properties view core plugin only disables the commands and Sidebar tabs for Show all properties and Show files properties.

To view the Properties/frontmatter/YAML as source in your note, change Settings > Editor > Properties in document to Source.
