Context Menu Does Not Correct Spelling When Invoked By Command

Steps to reproduce

  1. open help vault
  2. go to Settings > Editor and turn on spellcheck
  3. create a new document and type a misspelled word followed by space: Refference
  4. arrow over so the cursor is inside the word
  5. Ctrl/Cmd-P and choose Show context menu under cursor
  6. A context menu will pop up suggesting Reference as a replacement. Select it (using keyboard) and hit Enter.

Expected result

The misspelled word should change to Reference

Actual result

The misspelled word does not change.

Note that if you right-mouse click on the misspelled word and choose the correction with the mouse, it does work.

This happens with native menus on and off.
