Hotkeys cmd+E not working to set up or use

Unfortunately, I cannot set cmd + E hotkey. I’m using a mac US international keyboard. Was recommended by a mod to open a bug report after he asked me a series of questions. We came down to the conclusion that: we are up to the OS level/keyboard layout, it might be that the events are not being sent properly to Obsidian.

Let me know if you need any other info.
Thank you!

Additional information

open the help vault, what does cmd+e do?

I’m also confused as E is Roman Ascii and mapped to most international Mac keyboards, it’s a standard. Is this a Kanji keyboard?

Toggle edit/preview mode Ctrl/Cmd E

Nope, not a Kanji

That the correct behavour. So what is you problem?

Yes, that’s correct - however, my mac is not recognizing this and it doesn’t do anything basically
