Suggestion: Disable Ctrl-S

I have a suggestion for a small improvement.  

Normally in a web page, if you press Ctrl-S a save dialog box comes up to allow you to save the current page as a .html file.  This happens in OnShape as well, if you forget that you don't need to save...   

It's not a big deal, but it does make me feel like a bit of a dummy for pressing it.  I think new users to OnShape might prefer it if that hotkey were disabled while in an OnShape document.  Just a small comfort improvement, and it might ease the transition for users like me who are accustomed to saving constantly in their CAD program.  

I don't know how easy this would be to implement, but I do know in a Google Drive document, when you press Ctrl-S nothing happens.  So it should be possible.
