I have set a shortcut to select objects in outliner like this:

enter image description here

If i select the collection and tap my shortcut key...nothing happens.

If i select the collection and tap the menu point with the assigned shortcut key - works.

Is it a bug? Does anybody know a workaround for this? Or am i doing this wrong?

  • $\begingroup$ @Chris I don't even have the option to assign shortcut for such operator imgur.com/UD95S6W How did you assign it? :) BTW is it a time-saver since you have to select Collection first? $\endgroup$

It is not working because Alt+A is already assigned to Toggle Selected
