Encrypted pages are cached unencrypted

I just noticed that the pages of my encrypted VoodooPad document also exist as unencrypted copies with the file type .vpspotlight in Library/Caches/Metadata/VoodooPad

As the cached pages are indexed by Spotlight a Finder search for "bank" (for example) will locate the cached unencrypted copy of the VoodooPad page with my bank details which can then be opened and read in TextEdit.

I'm running VoodooPad 5.3.0 on a MacBook Pro (Retina 13", early 2015) with OS 10.14.3
