Summary0028738: Keybindings: Unable to delete objects using 'Delete' key on US Mac Physical Keyboard layouts
DescriptionIf you use a US Mac keyboard and attempt to delete something (an Instance, Object from Room Editor, for example) using the 'Delete' key, nothing will happen. You have to press FN+Delete instead to mimic the UK Physical layout 'Backspace'.

Instead, we should allow US keyboards to mimic the backspace command by pressing the 'Delete' key.
Steps To ReproduceSpeculative:

1. Open any project, create a few objects, add them to the Room.
2. In the Room, select an object graphically.
3. Using a US physical layout Mac Keyboard, press Delete.
4. Observe nothing happens.
5. Press FN+Delete, observe the object is deleted.

6. Using a UK physical layout Mac Keyboard, press Backspace.
7. Observe that the object is deleted.
