Sync: Add Hotkey/Gesture to Trigger Sync

Use case or problem

Currently, Obsidian Sync will update the remote vault when it detects changes to a note. On some systems or setups, this can be slow, or just not desired. I’ve had a user request that a hotkey or gesture be added to be able to trigger sync manually even if sync is currently paused. Essentially, the same as CTRL/CMD + S.

This may also help instances on mobile devices when Sync appears to stall.

Proposed solution

A hotkey or gesture that triggers a manual sync.

Current workaround (optional)

Selecting pause sync, and unpausing again. There is also not a hotkey for this workaround either.

Related feature requests (optional)

Currently none.
