I'm trying to unparent an object from an armature, but alt-p does nothing. I looked online to see if there is a new shortcut for this function, but cannot find anything.

Any help would be appreciated :)

  • $\begingroup$ hmm can't think of what it could be. In Blender 2.7 I was getting this strange proxy warning whenever I pressed alt-p, so I installed 2.8. I don't get the proxy warning anymore, but alt-p does nothing. I can still work though as I can just unparent the object in the armature modifier $\endgroup$

Try the other Alt key. In my case only the left Alt key (next to the windows key) works.
