"Focus on last note" doesn't work through keyboard shortcut on macOS

Steps to reproduce

  • Assign shortcut to “Focus on last note”.
  • Focus on left sidebar.
  • Use shortcut to “Focus on last note” - it won’t work.

Expected result

When you open command palette and click “Focus on Last Note” it works. I expect keyboard shortcut to work as well.

This works for me. Can you please post a screen recording of this happening in the sandbox vault, showing your hotkey config too.

I experimented and found more info on it - I think it will be sufficient in place of the recording.
My shortcut to move to file explorer was Ctrl+Shift+Left and it works fine.
My shortcut to focus last note was Ctrl+Shift+Right and it doesn’t work.

When I changed the shortcut for last note focus to Cmd+R it works.

I think the arrow shortcuts in particular are not respected when the focus is on file explorer. When I do the Ctrl+Shift+Rightshortcut when the focus is on a collapsed folder, it will expand the folder as if I pressed just the right arrow.
