Pressing the ↹ Tab key does not toggle object and edit mode in 2.8

How can I access and exit edit mode?

How do I access Weight Paint, Vertex paint or Sculpt Mode mode in version 2.8?

  • $\begingroup$ Is this confirmed for a fact as the standard way it will be going forward? $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Jun 4 '18 at 21:07
  • $\begingroup$ Also see blender.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/2349/…. For one, even tho minor, I believe they've changed the scale, rotate and translate icons about 3 times now. Good to be preemptive but also try to link to the relevant developer discussion or blog cementing an answer as fact. $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Jun 4 '18 at 21:09
  • $\begingroup$ Just built latest 2.8, seems tab behaviour is back. Useful to keep track of ongoing keymap changes developer.blender.org/T55194 $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Aug 28 '18 at 17:35
