Ignore it. It needs to be removed from the manual. This is a left over remnant of years ago, when Ardour took keybinding inspiration from the audio editor "snd", and thus from the text editor "emacs". Its been gone for quite a long time.
Your subscriptions & donations are critical help that make it possible for full-time development of Ardour to continue. Your support is critical and much appreciated.
