Short description of error
(Two errors related to materials-window)

  1. "Assign Material"-Shortcut is created in the wrong place, therefore does not work.
  2. "Add new Material"-Shortcut does not relate to the interface.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error


1
By rightclicking, the shortcut is created in the Input Preferences under "Object Mode", which is wrong. It simply does nothing in Object mode. In order to work it has to be manually created under "Mesh" with the same entry name.

2
The shortcut for the big "New" button does not work for the button, instead it calls bpy.ops.material.new() and silently creates new materials in the data. So its misleading.
This would be neat to have, can you make it work as the interface suggests?
