In Blender 2.8 i have been unable to find the location of the subdivide button in any menu in edit mode and have only been able to get it using the search key. The lack of any keybind is also making it quite difficult. I am using beta 2.80.41

    $\begingroup$ You can now right click in Edit Mode to open up the Specials Menu if that's your question. $\endgroup$ – brockmann Feb 4 at 2:46
  • $\begingroup$ Didn't think to check the right click menu for the subdivide function. Yep it's there thanks for the help. $\endgroup$ – Dracon Wolf Feb 4 at 2:47

The Subdivide operator can be found:

  1. In the Context menu aka Specials menu (RMBor W in case of using 2.7 keymap)

    enter image description here

  2. As part of the Edge menu in Edit Mode

    enter image description here

  3. Or via Spacebar by searching for Subdivide

    enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ The default keymap for Blender 2.80 is Left Click Select, so the "W" shortcut won't work (and will actually do a different thing: changing the selection mode) for a new user using defaults $\endgroup$ – Nicola Sap Feb 4 at 10:46
  • $\begingroup$ @NicolaSap You are right, I am using 2.7 keymap... I have updated the answer. $\endgroup$ – Jan Kadeřábek Feb 4 at 11:20

The following info are based on 2.8 and onward. 2.79 and previous versions have it differently.

By default, the fastest way to subdivide between edges selection is Right-Click, followed by pressing S. Right-Click is now a fully integrated context menu (its content is based on the active menu and the type of selection) You can see the Subdivide in the Context Menu when in Edit Mode with Edge active.

If you don't Right-Click after selecting the edges and then press S you'll activate the selection scaling mode. If that happen, just right-click to cancel and turn-off the selection scaling mode.


EDIT

If you have the Right-Click set to Select (which was the standard in 2.79 or previous), then you won't be able to bring up the menu with that key. In that case, you can press W to call the Vertex Context Menu (Subdivide is the first item in this menu)

You can only subdivide once now. To get more than one subdivision you need to use the Loop Cut tool (Ctrl + R ), unless you want to subdivide something like a cone.
