I was trying to look for the select menu shortcut from the settings to no avail. The reason for this is I want to improve my workflow and adding select menu to a simple simple keystroke would improve it a lot.

Now I know it's possible add hotkeys for individual actions, but I tend to use a lot of the tools available in the select menu and it would be great to have them all under a shortcut accessible menu. Similar to how one can bring up the Specials contextual with the W button.

tl;dr: How can I bring this up with a keystroke?

Select menu

  • $\begingroup$ This was a bit more clearer than the other answer, thanks! Worth noting that operator parameter name can be the name of any sub-menu. $\endgroup$ – Asutekku Jun 28 '17 at 6:59

add a hotkey, and for the action type wm.call_menu. In the 'name' field that appears, put the text that pops up when you hover over the menu (it is case sensitive).
