Opening the context menu with keyboard displays a different context menu

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open the sandbox vault
  2. Enable spellcheck
  3. Open the file “Plugins make Obsidian special for you”

Expected result

  • Some of the words should be marked as incorrect
  • You should be able to add those words to your dictionary with a mouse or with the keyboard

Actual result

  • The context menu is different when you press the context menu button on the keyboard (aka Application key). I think the mac keyboards don’t have this key.

    Notice the difference in border-radius and color - they are not styled the same way either.
  • Choosing “Add to Dictionary” from the context menu which opens via keyboard doesn’t work.
    I guess in this case the word is added to the chromium dictionary instead.
  • You are forced to switch from keyboard to mouse to add a word to the dictionary.
    • It would be convenient if you could assign a shortcut key for adding a word to the dictionary, but that’s not possible either.
