Redo broken on Mac

With Obsidian v1.0.3 on MacOS 12.6.1, using Redo from the Edit menu is broken.

Steps to reproduce

From Obsidian v1.0.3 on a mac, open the Sandbox vault, and type a new word to add it to the document.

Using Edit → Undo (or cmd-Z) undo your addition to the document.

Use Edit → Redo, and realize that it doesn’t work to reapply the addition.

(cmd-shift-Z does work, however)

Expected result

I would expect that Edit → Undo , followed by Edit → Redo would result in an unchanged document.

Actual result

Instead of an unchanged document, Undo appears to be destructive because the user’s request to Redo their changes is ignored.

If the user accidentally triggered an undo operation in an otherwise stable note, they may lose data and not know how to get it back.

I think this may also be the reason why “Command + Shift + Z” for redo on a Dvorak keyboard doesn’t work as well.
