# How to assign a key to “Select All by Trait”? It is not in list

I'm trying to assign a key to "Select All by Trait" (mesh edit mode, "select" menu) but it is not listed in Keymap. Is it possible?

I want to popup this menu on some key, same as Shift+G popups "Select Similar" menu. Currently I added it to "Q" (Quick Favorites). It's OK generally, but I wonder if it is possible to assign separate key for such unlisted key.

I'm using blender 2.83 and 2.9

• so your question is how to assign another shortcut than Q to a function that has no default shortcut at all? – moonboots Nov 14 '20 at 7:34

• Thanks for posting this. I think it could be improved by showing how you find the name for a menu or command so it can be applied to other things as well. Where did VIEW3D_MT_edit_mesh_select_by_trait come from? I'd like to make a hotkey for mesh -> cleanup as well. Also, is it possible to fire an action directly without the menu? So a hotkey just always does the "select non-manifold" action without showing the "select by trait" menu? – Nick Apr 6 at 13:01
