# Customizing shortcuts in 2.8+ vs 2.79

In 2.79 I have the following keyboard shortcuts assigned for Edit Mode:

• Vertex Select: Cmd1
• Edge Select: Cmd2
• Face Select: Cmd3

Note: I'm using "Emulate Numpad", so I register a shortcut as Numpad 1 instead of 1, for example.

Here's what the key binding that controls that in 2.79 looks like:

And here's what I tried in 2.90 that isn't working:

I believe it has to do with the RNA field not existing in 2.8+ but I'm not sure how RNA works. What would be the way to do this in newer versions of Blender?

There are two problems that need to be solved:

1. The shortcut you're attempting to assign is already in use for the viewport navigation. You may want to change these so you're still able to use them with a different key binding.
2. The identifier for the operator is not correct, but creating a new shortcut isn't necessary since the mode selection already exists in the default keymap. You only need to adjust the key binding from the regular 1, 2 and 3 keys to the numpad ones.

In order to solve problem 1):

1. Open the keymap preferences
2. Switch the filter method to Key-Bindings.
3. Search for "Select Mode", the identifier for the operator is mesh.select_mode.
