It can be achieved by using formatter property. We need to create customformatterModel to configure the keyConfig using IHtmlFormatterModel class and assign the same to the formatter property. Here, ctrl+q is configured to open the Insert Hyperlink dialog.

  export default {
    data() {
    var customHTMLModel = {
  keyConfig: {
