YAML text overflow

This one is fairly simple, but quite annoying for my workflow.

In the YAML metadata, any title that is too long will not be wrapped which makes the metadata section quite ugly. In my case it happens with the “aliases” category, but any metadata that is too long should cause it.

I do have plug-ins, but they do not matter in this case (I already reproduced the issue in the sandbox).

Steps to reproduce

  1. Make the frontmatter section visible in the Settings
  2. Paste the following metadata
aliases: ["Minimizing emissions from grid-based hydrogen production in the United States with this extremely long title that might cause issues if Obsidian is not catching the line limit"]
in: Environmental Research Letters
authors: [Wilson Ricks, Qingyu Xu, Jesse D. Jenkins]
year: 2023
doi: 10.1088/1748-9326/acacb5
type: article
tags: 📢,unread
  1. Switch to reading mode…
  2. Boom, ugly

Expected result

The “aliases” should be wrapped.

Actual result

Text “overflows” to the right.

we won’t fix that since the ui will be changed in 1.4
