Would like ⌘M to minimize like in every other macOS app

In every other app on my Mac, ⌘M minimizes the window. I see that Studies has appropriated this OS-wide shortcut for something else. I have tried to minimize the window several times now with this keybinding, only to see nothing happen. UI consistency is one of the reasons I use a Mac instead of FreeBSD/Linux (or, horrors, Windows...), and Studies violating this expectation degrades the experience. I'd love to see the keybinding rearranged to be more consistent with the rest of the OS. It's a very minor thing, but it's quite conspicuous because of the system's otherwise uniform behavior. It's almost like using something other than ⌘C for Copy.

    Hi Chris,
    This was not a deliberate move. I think we just accidentally appropriated that shortcut without realising it was already taken.
    We will put back to standard usage in a future update.
    Kind regards,
