The shortcut for Set Origin (Shift + Ctrl + Alt + c) isn't working.

When I searched for the action in the search bar accessed by pressing f3 there were no buttons noted after the "Set origin" action, which is weird.

I don't know why and how this happened. How do i fix this?

    $\begingroup$ In Blender 2.8 there isn't a shortcut assigned for this operation in the default keymap. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Robert is right, you can get the menu only through Right click, or Object > Set Origin since 2.8. $\endgroup$ Dec 26, 2019 at 18:24

Unfortunately, the shortcut Shift-Ctr-Alt-C has been deprecated in the latest version(s) of Blender: Blender 2.8. The only way to access the Set Origin command as of now is to either through Object > Set Origin, How to set object origin way #1

or via the right-click/W key menu (depending on your keymap; refer below).

Of course, you could just switch to the old Blender 2.7x keymap via the Keymap section in the Blender Preferences, which would allow you to use the Shift-Ctr-Alt-C shortcut,

although I highly doubt that the devs would consider updating it with every new release of Blender, so it would be recommended to just use the first two methods.


I understand your query to its full extent now. The behaviour that Blender does not offer the menu for the keyframing action along with the suggestion in the search-bar menu is not a bug; it is supposed to happen (it will pop-up once you click on the "suggestion"). However, if you still feel that it is indeed a bug, feel free to report it to the Blender Open Report Bug Tracker.


If you don't mind using pie menus, you can enable the shipped Pie Menus add-on. There's an 'Origins' pie available through that. Default shortcut CtrlAltX. It can also send the origin straight to your selection starting in Edit Mode, skipping a step.


Preferences > Keymap > 3D View > Object Non-modal > Add New.

Expand None and type in active field object.origin_set set shortcut to Shift + Ctrl + C Done!
