Assigning shortcut to Sequencer data is wrongly 'hooked' the Scene instead of Scene's VSE data
Confirmed, NormalPublicBUG


This error shows all the time when I right click on the viewscreen, and I have to right click and press ESC, so the message disappears and I keep working this way, right click, a message appears, ESC.
It suddenly started to happen and even deleting and downloading blender again, even with the other 2.8 version it happens.

Thank you, I love your work guys

Please provide the exact Blender version and also the system-info.txt.
You can do that by going to the help menu. If you click on "Report a bug" the information about the Blender version should be filled out automatically. Also in the help menu you can save the System Info.
A screenshot which is showing the error message is also helpful.

Can you please attach a screenshot of the error message you get?
Does this also happens when you load the default settings?

Alessio, I just loaded the default setting and now it is working very well, thank you very much!
But unfortunately, it changed the way I used to work on blender, but I'll try to configure it again, this time without messing up hahaha

By the way, follow bellow the information about the problem I was experiencing, it might be helpful somehow (I had filled out this request before realizing that loading the default setting would work)

Sorry man, here it is the right information

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
It happens all the time when I right-click on the viewport, I've also tried on blender 2.8 beta, the same problem happens, and I have to press ESC after right-clicking. But when I hold shift or ctrl or alt + right-click it doesn't show the message.

Thanks a lot for helping me guys!!

While this should be resolved by rBacd98599ffe4, I am still able to "reproduce":

  • Open new Video Editing template
  • assign shortcut ctrl+++++a to Timeline header -> View->Cache -> Show Cache
  • hit ctrl+++++a
