Unable to remove CTRL+Left/Right arrow key hotkey from creating a new card in canvas

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new file
  2. Type something in it
  3. Get the “This file has been externally modified” message
  • I checked and no where do I have set up sync or backup on the obsidian folder, on any device other than obsidian sync.

Expected result

  • No ‘externally modified’ message.
