[Bug] Hotkey acting funny on iPadOS


[x] iOS
[ ] Android

Obsidian Mobile version: v0.0.17

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Settings > Hotkey.
  2. Record a hotkey, pressing Command-Option-I.

Expected result

Command-Option-I should be recorded as the hotkey.

Actual result

Command-Option-6 was recorded as the hotkey. Pressing either Command-Option-I or Command-Option-6 now leads to the command being executed.


  • Operating system: iPadOS 14.4.2
  • Obsidian version: 0.0.17
  • Hardware: Apple Magic Keyboard and iPad Air 4
  • Physical keyboard layout: International English
  • Keyboard layout in system settings: U.S.

Additional information

The keystroke combination Command-Shift-I works properly in other apps. The keystroke I produces i as expected in the Obsidian editor as well as other apps.
