Creating custom keyboard shortcuts on Mac seems to have an issue keeping the correct meta key mapped. During the same session a shortcut is set it will work fine. After restarting any Cmd shortcuts will be changed to Ctrl, and vice versa. The editor will change the mapping each time the editor is reopened and Swap them to be the opposite of what it read them as the previous time.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. On a Mac, Navigate to Unreal Editor>Preferences>KeyboardShortcuts
  2. In search bar, type "open assets"
  3. Under "Content Browser," Open Assets and Folders, enter: Cmd + O
  4. Under "System-wide," Open Assets, enter Ctrl + Shift + O
  5. Close Editor, Reopen, and Navigate to Preferences again
    RESULT: Cmd + O is now set as Ctrl + O and now Ctrl + Shift + O is now Cmd + O (See attached image) Closing and Re-opening will result in the entries switching back to the way they were set and so on...
    EXPECTED: The fields to keep their entered settings upon restarting the editor
