I noted that there is no U (make single user menu) in the list. Actually it was removed. Why it missed in the list?

Hello, me again.
We used to have shift+uparrow and downarrow for delta frame offset . This is an essential key binding for compositing and rotoscoping works.
I have checked creating two key with shit+ up and down arrow without any conflict. Please bring it back in default blender if it's alright.

Nope, it is used for both convert to mesh (apply mosifiers) and convert to spline.
There is no "mostly".
Personaly, I would like to add "remove all animations" to Alt+C - mesh action, that will be even more convenient.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) If possible, I would very much like to be able to add a new shortcut preset, which includes the current 2.8, and the old 2.7x. I mean, if there is no shortcut operation in the 2.8 version, use the old 2.7 shortcut. . Such as alt+c conversion mode. thanks.

In 2.8 in the node editor, using right click select, we seem to have lost the shortcut for cutting links (ctrl+click and drag). Is there any alternatives that i'm missing, short of using the links cut active tool or dragging out of the destination socket (both highly unpractical for me)?

@William Reynish (billreynish) once again you have nailed it! Mapping the key left of 1 (in my case, backslash) is the obvious and most elegant solution in my opinion.

Duarte Farrajota Ramos (duarteframos) added a comment to T55194: Shortcut Keys Changed in 2.8x.

Blender should not use the Tilde key directly, but always map to the key to the left of 1 on the number row.

Thank you for clarification.
Yes, it would be great if users with keyboard layout issues indicated the current keyboard model they are talking about.

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T55194: Shortcut Keys Changed in 2.8x.

@Paul Kotelevets (1D_Inc) Full-size Mac keyboards typically have *more* buttons than most average PC keyboards. Macs go up to F19, for example. So technically most PC users have ‘less capabilities’.

Paul Kotelevets (1D_Inc) added a comment to T55194: Shortcut Keys Changed in 2.8x.

99% of mac users don't ever need to perform 3d modeling, so, obviously, Apple is interested in keepeing layout as minimal as possible.
But all we know - less buttons - less abilities, that's how it works.
Otherwise, there would be no problems with the layout.

@Paul Kotelevets (1D_Inc) ...
Seriously, Paul? "Comfortable peripherals?" "...Mac or comfortable work?" I came here looking to inform/remind the developers about this shortcoming regarding the backtick key and I have to hear this kind of nonsense? I'm not talking about an Amiga, Sun, Wang, Atari or Be keyboard. It's a Macintosh keyboard and whether you personally like it or not its a widely-accepted layout. Macintosh Blender users (regardless of keyboard layout) are more than a bump on the map and I'm confident the developers/Blender Foundation can confirm this. 2.8 is the first version that actually has the Command key mapped.

Paul Kotelevets (1D_Inc) added a comment to T55194: Shortcut Keys Changed in 2.8x.

Mac was never designed to provide comfortable peripherals, it's goal is to be minimalistic, so it has got keyboard layout that is mostly for fun.
So there will be a lot of keys that were removed on Mac, it is it's main problem.
This way user have to decide if he wants Mac or comfortable work.

Paul Kotelevets (1D_Inc) added a comment to T55194: Shortcut Keys Changed in 2.8x.

Don't know if that matters, because for professional work keyboards are always chosen properly, IBM model M layout is the most popular and profound.
Also that depends on workflow, Model M covers most, but, for example, for baroque modeling and retopology sometimes I use Logitech F310 gamepad and G300s mouse.

One more mention of the difficulty to access accent-grave/backtick on some keyboards: we're giving a course in Italy and a lot of keyboards (both Mac and Windows) do not have the backtick on a key anywhere. We're having to show how to assign a custom shortcut (not really attractive in an introductory course).

the AccentGrave (') is not accessible on a german-keyboard-layout to be used as a shortcut.. it's hidden behind Shift+# and in the place were the AccentGrave sits on an US-Layout, the german-layout has a degree sign (°)

So is the idea that Blender 2.8 will have the "Winner" column for the navigation controls? Because the most recent one I downloaded does not... and it is practically un-useable from someone coming from Maya.. It just slows stuff down so much.

I see that it's been a while and the new tool system has come a long way. I appreciate everyone's hard work. Also I know that UI is freezed now, but there is a must-known problem that needs to be shared before 2.81 development.

Hi @Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) any chance to have the Lasso mask available as a tool in the toolbar in sculpt mode? That one would be really useful. Currently we only have the Box mask in the toolbar.
Thank you.

Conor Fenlon (conorfenlon) added a comment to T54728: Keymap for setting start/end frame from animation/timeline editors.

Hi folks. New user here. I just wanted to pipe in on the change of setting the Start and End frame shortcuts in 2.8. I saw a shortcut list on another page that displayed several handy new shortcuts. I used 2.79 a LOT for video editing. I loved the workflow I developed over time, and setting the End and Start positions with E and S was sorely missed when I tried 2.8 first. It's still easily doable by using 'Ctrl-Home' for setting the Start frame and 'Ctrl-End' for setting the End frame. Hope this helps any people who miss the old shortcuts as much as I did. On the plus side, I am LOVING the new changes with the additions of the quick favs menu and the new pie menus. Anyways, hope this helps. Take care, and keep on Blendin'!

Right now we have IMO a very confusing set of shortcuts:
