Sitecore CTRL+S fires item:saving event twice

If you have ever tried to implement your own Sitecore item:saving or item:saved event handlers, or have tried to extend the SaveUI pipeline, you might have noticed that the events gets fired twice if you click [CTRL]+[S], but only once if you click the [Save] button.

If this happens to you, check the Save button chunk in the CORE database.

  • Go to /sitecore/content/Applications/Content Editor/Ribbons/Chunks/Write/Save
    itemid: {12FF26DE-2BBC-4E60-A43A-735DF841E3CA}
  • Find the “Key Code” field.
  • Clear the field
/sitecore/content/Applications/Content Editor/Ribbons/Chunks/Write/Save

/sitecore/content/Applications/Content Editor/Ribbons/Chunks/Write/Save

It seems that the key code c83 will activate the SaveUI pipeline on [CTRL]+[S] even when Sitecore already called it.
