Pressing escape on my tablet keyboard closes the app instead of the opened menu

Steps to reproduce

When you press the “Escape” key to close a dialog on the Android Version of the app, the app gets closed in the way.

Expected result

The app should remain open. The sidebar/options menu should get closed.

Actual result

The app and the sidebar/options menu gets closed.
