Keymap appeared.

I dont get any keymap entries from the Mesh: Edit Mesh Tools Addon.
(also there doesnt seem to be any code in the Addon for doing this...)
It also doesnt seem right that this appears in Object Mode in your screenshot?

If I add that manually into the 3Dview > Mesh category, it seems to work without problems...

  • are you sure this is a non-modified version of the Addon?
  • does it work if you add it manually to the Mesh category?

Yep. This is non-modified version.
I noticed that it is for Object Mode, but i can't figure out how to change it...
How can I add it to Mesh category?

is this an issue now ?

Now I am using pivot point and scaling instead. Did not figured out how to add this addon to Mesh category...

I also cannot get any keymap entries for "set edge length " . try 2.82a and that too if possible, after File > Defaults > load factory settings. To preserve settings, first copy the Blender foundation folder in APPDATA somewhere else.

Did not figured out how to add this addon to Mesh category...

I think he meant adding the keymap to Mesh category manually, instead of "Object Mode" as shown in second screenshot.
