  • Obsidian version: 0.12.19

Additional information

I am using a french dvorak-like keyboard layout named “BÉPO”. Most other shortcuts work in Obsidian, but the one mentioned above doesn’t. The shortcut works when switching to a standard keyboard layout.

This seems related to the following bug reports in the bug-graveyard:

What happens in you manually remap that shortcut?

Remapping to e.g. CONTROL-CMD-F works.

what happens if you remap it to cmd-shift-f?

I don’t think we are gonna do anything specific about this because it took a long time to find a setup that works for most people. I don’t know what’s so special about cmd-shift-f and bepo.

Doesn’t work again. Actually when I press cmd-shift-f it just doesn’t remap, it’s like I’m not even pressing any key. Restoring the default leads to the shortcut not working again.

Totally understand. I’ll use something with ctrl instead!
