Can I customize/disable specific editor keyboard shortcuts in Confluence?

I'd like to customize or disable a specific editor keyboard shortcut in Confluence.

Can I? If so: how?

I'm on a Mac so Cmd-1 switches to the first browser tab but Confluence overrides this command by making the current text a Header-1. Not very handy.

Hi Niels,

You can turn off the keyboard shortcuts in your Profile > Settings, but this won't turn off the editing shortcuts.  You can also selectively turn off individual keyboard shortcuts, but only in the server version.

There's an open ticket asking for the ability to turn off editor keyboard shortcuts: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-21908

The link to selectively turn off shortcuts is now a missing page. :(
