Short description of error
Changing Select With setting between RCS and LCS affects imported keymap

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • export default (Blender) keymap with LCS setting.
  • Change Keymap to RCS
  • import keymap

imported keymap is also RCS

  • Change default (Blender) keymap to LCS

imported keymap is now LCS

Event Timeline

Here is the keymap file I used:

After I reimported my keymap ("Blender Keymap"), the Preferences field was no longer visible. I see that this also varies with the 2.7x or Industry compatible keymaps, but mine was just a variation of the standard 2.8 Blender keymap. I would expect to be able to still have access there.

see T58577

Next issue conflicts with statement "Saved key configurations have those settings baked in.", so that seems to be a valid issue.

Thanks for confirming. I also saw that Quick Favorites are not preserved (Export -> Import). Maybe that's something to add.
Thank you!

Note that "Quick Favorites" are stored in preferences, not keymaps.
