  6. Click on find to go to the first match
  7. Switch back to view mode without exiting search
  8. Click find a few times
  9. The note’s header will dissapear
  10. Restart the app is needed

Hi Vianney,

Thank you for reporting it.
I confirmed the problem.
The search bar in the editor should be hidden when switching back to the preview mode.
I also noticed that it gets back to the correct state if you switch again to the edit mode.

That’s right, switching back to edit mode pressing the key shortcut is a workaround.

From v3.20.2, the in-editor-search-box will be hidden when toggling preview. Thanks again for the report!
