Workspace#getActiveViewOfType does not return MarkdownView docked in sidebar

Steps to reproduce

  1. Dock a MarkdownView to the sidebar
  2. Use getActiveViewOfType(MarkdownView) to try and access the view in the sidebar or something similar like editorCallback which uses the same function internally

Expected result

This method (and the parameter of editorCallback) should be the focused markdown view in the sidebar

Actual result

The method returns the main view in the center of obsidian or nothing if no file is open. This causes commands to trigger on the wrong editor or not at all.
All of these methods do not lead to the wanted result.
