Blender 2.8 Specials Menu and Loop Tools

I was trying to add some of the actions of the add-on Loop Tools to the quick menu, but i can’t do that through the search, and i can’t find the specials menu neither

So, the specials menu still exists? and is possible to access the loop tools aside from the search?

If you activate the Properties panel (N key), there’s a Tab at the right side that leads you to LoopTools. I don’t know if you can add LoopTools functions to the Quick Preferences from there, but you can try it.

If by ‘Specials’ menu you mean the Context menu (previously the W key), you can get that by right-clicking in a viewport.

I had the W working in my last 2.80 version which was perhaps 2 weeks ago. As of today, 06-05-2019, W or specials menu doesnt show and returns an error. Also search for “context menu” doesnt give any results. Right clicking in the viewport with a selection active also does nothing?!

Also why does W in object do show a context menu than?! I dont understand some of the choices they are making, they are shuffling so many things around.

Edit
they changed the operators name. OS right click in the viewport will never work since that is deselect.
