I wanted to assign similar hot keys on Snap menu and setting Origin menu like shift + f1 and ctrl + f1 since you can't add Origin menu to Quick Favorite

After seeing this question, I managed to make it for setting Origin, but I couldn't for Snap enter image description here

I only found those on google bpy.ops.view3d.snap_cursor_to_active() bpy.ops.view3d.snap_cursor_to_center() bpy.ops.view3d.snap_cursor_to_grid() bpy.ops.view3d.snap_selected_to_active() bpy.ops.view3d.snap_cursor_to_selected() bpy.ops.view3d.snap_selected_to_cursor

which are options under Snap menu. I hope there's a way to round them up as one shortcut button (not as a quick favorite menu)

  • $\begingroup$ fill that empty blank with "action.snap", which will bring you that menu. $\endgroup$ Feb 5, 2020 at 4:26
  • $\begingroup$ @Nate_Sycro27 it doesn't bring that menu. it seems its related to animation snapping which has sub menu for Current frame. $\endgroup$ Feb 5, 2020 at 4:30

To set the snap menu in Blender, you must open Blender preferences, and go to the input tab.

In the search blank, type "snap keys". One result-snap keys should show up. As you showed in the picture, the blank for controlling this action with a shortcut was empty. If no results show up, then make a new shortcut with these settings:
