How can I add a keyboard shortcut to buttons in Business Central cloud?

Hi experts,

I have made an extension for Business Central cloud.

I would like to add a shortcut key to the "Print Confirmatiton" on the sales order page, but when I try to add the shortcut key "Shift-Ctrl-B", it shows or removes the favourites toolbar in Google Chrome, that I use, when I press it. As I understand https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/business-central/dev-itpro/developer/properties/devenv-shortcutkey-property the Business Central shortcuts should be activated instead of the ones in the browser.
The tooltip gets "(Shift-Ctrl-b)" in the end - with a small "b". That's also weird.

Also I have a new button that I would like to be activated by Shift-Ctrl-F. When I try that, nothing happens and the tooltip does not show the shortcut key.

Here is my code:

pageextension 50124 SalesOrder extends "Sales Order"
{
actions
{
modify("Print Confirmation")
{
ShortcutKey = 'Shift-Ctrl-B';
}

addafter(AttachAsPDF)
{
action(PrintSomething)
{
ApplicationArea = All;
Caption = 'Print something';
Image = Production;

Promoted = true;
PromotedCategory = Category11;
ToolTip = 'something';
ShortcutKey = 'Shift-Ctrl-F';

trigger OnAction()
begin
...
end;
}
}
}
}

    Have you tried replacing "-" with "+" as in official documentation?
