Short description of error
"Assign Material Slot"-Shortcut is created in the wrong place, therefore does not work.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

By rightclicking, the shortcut is created in the Input Preferences under 3D-View > Object Mode > Object Mode (Global) which is wrong. It simply does nothing in Object mode. In order to work it has to be manually created under 3D-View > Mesh > Mesh (Global) with the same entry name.

Might turn out as a known limitation, but will confirm for now...

It is a known issue, has been since the early days of 2.5x project I guess… Some operators are just fairly hard to manage that way. Note that work as expected when materials are assigned to object and not obdata…

Don’t think @Jacques Lucke (JacquesLucke) should have closed T71896 tbh, this one and T73022 are essentially same problem. Will keep both open for now though.
