Command line options to toggle the hardware acceleration (and more)

Use case or problem

It would be really great to have the options to toggle a few Obsidian settings via command line parameters. For me personally the most required is to be able to run Obsidian with hardware acceleration off sometimes to minimize the VRAM impact.

Proposed solution

Running Obsidian with a command option to disable hardware acceleration, for example
Obsidian.exe -acceleraion_off

This would also give me the ability to make a separate “gpu off” icon to run Obsidian with no acceleration.

Current workaround (optional)

Run Obsidian, disable the hardware acceleration and restart. Same procedure to restore it.

Related feature requests (optional)

It could support some other key Obsidian settings as well. The users could suggest the most useful for them as well.

It would be nice to know what command-line options we have so far.

Right now I can’t get Obsidian to start, so having --help, --verbose and --safe-mode would be quite useful.
