If you don't want the default assignments to be registered, you can disable all of them with this configuration; if you chose to do this, you must explicitly register every binding.

config.disable_default_key_bindings = true


When using disable_default_key_bindings, it is recommended that you assign ShowDebugOverlay to something to aid in potential future troubleshooting.

Likewise, you may wish to assign ActivateCommandPalette.
