    $\begingroup$ Using the instructions from linked page I can make the menu appear, so define what doesn't work / isn't clear for you - on step of opening User Prefs window, on step of searching for appropriate context for the shortcut, etc. See also blender.meta.stackexchange.com/q/2449/1245 and please format your questions in a bit more clear way, you can edit it to add any info. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Where does it suggest run object.modifier_add in python console? Be like putting milk in your petrol tank and wondering why your car wont start. Add it in the keymap editor $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


The string you type in the shortcut configuration screen is not Python code. It just happens to look somewhat similar to it. To run the operator as Python code, prefix it with bpy.ops, so bpy.ops.object.modifier_add().

However, it's better to not use operators at all, and use a regular Python function instead:

bpy.context.active_object.modifiers.new('operatorname', 'BEVEL')

See the documentation for more info on all the operator type names. This function returns the new modifier, so you can set properties on it directly.
