YAML metadata doesn't remains invisible in the rendering

Hi, this is my metadata block, which is at the very top of the file:

title: Cancer history in patients with acute coronary syndrome is associated with less frequent achievement of TIMI flow 3
author: Anna Skrobisz et al.
date: 2017-09-27
Base Header Level: 2

Neither /usr/local/bin/pandoc -f markdown -t html5 --smart --normalize --standalone nor the standard processor consistently create a visible title/author date section at the top of the document. I.e., from time to time I was able to obtain a rendition. But its appearance seems random to me and I couldn't replicate it.

Version 2.5.10 (930)

    Marked and MultiMarkdown have no built-in features for generating a
    title block from YAML. Pandoc may, but running your command on the
    command line with the YAML block provided never gave me a title page.

    If you set Marked to "Treat YAML as MMD metadata" under
    Preferences>Advanced, you could then use a MultiMarkdown placeholder (if
    you're using the built in MMD):

    # [%title]


    I'm uncertain exactly what you're looking for, though.
