Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.90.0 Beta, branch: master, commit date: 2020-08-20 15:47, hash: rB05e1ccf10836
Worked: (newest version of Blender that worked as expected)

Lack of results in F3 Search bar. For example: Limit Number of Weights per Vertex,
Separate, Save Preferences and many more...

It's real degradation for Blender. Blender loosing it functionality behind the fashion cover!
Upgrade of search bar was dubious but now it harms workflow.

Event Timeline

  • Limit Number of Weights per Vertex only works in weight paint & edit mode, where vertex selection may be used.
  • Separate isn't enough information.
  • Save Preferences is only available from the preferences, however I don't think this harms workflows as saving preferences happens automatically on exit (by default).

Since we only expose whats available in menus, resolving each issue means adding it to a menu.

Please reply to T74157: Use menus for operator search & various improvements listing each item you're missing, with a suggestion for which menu they could be added into.
