iPad keyboard mapping issue


[x] iPadOS
[ ] Android

Obsidian Mobile version: v1.4.6 (105)

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Settings > Hotkey.
  2. Record a hotkey, pressing Command-#or Command-+.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? Yes

Expected result

Command-# or Command-+ should be recorded as the hotkey.

Actual result

Command-3 or Command-= was recorded as the hotkey.


  • Operating system: iPadOS 16.5.1 (c)
  • Obsidian version: 1.4.6 (105)
  • Hardware: Apple Magic Keyboard and iPad Pro (2021)
  • Physical keyboard layout: German QWERTZ
  • Keyboard layout in system settings: German

Additional information

I had initially recorded the Hotkeys on Mac. There, the Hotkey read Command-# but initially showed on iPad as Command-\. It cannot be reproduced as a Hotkey, since in my keyboard layout the keyboard command to get to „backslash“ is Option-Shift-7.

Ok, but does it work?
