Short description of error
Alt-C shortcut for "Convert To..." is not present as documented.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Look at https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/editors/3dview/object/editing/introduction.html#bpy-ops-object-convert and see that 2.80 documents claim the shortcut is present.
  2. Try using Alt-C on an object and see that it has no effect.
  3. Look in Edit->Preferences->Key Map and see that the shortcut is only defined for Grease Pencil and there is no other shortcut for the function.
  4. Profit

I believe it is possible to add the shortcut but I am unsure if it will collide with the new Grease Pencil shortcut for some reason. So I think it is either an oversight in the new shortcuts or a bug in the documentation.

It is an incredibly useful feature that only seems to appear in the Object menu and in the search menu. It does not appear in the Object Context menu (right click for those of us committing to left click). I think it should. I haven't found a way to add things to the Object Context Menu and it doesn't appear I can add a quick key for the 'Convert to' menu (just the individual items).

Thanks,
