I’ve been using the 2.8 beta and there’s something I don’t understand with respect to keyboard shortcuts and the tool menu.
When I’m editing a mesh and, say, I want to use the knife tool, I can press the ‘K’ key to use the knife tool. However, it doesn’t select the knife tool in the tool menu on the left side of the 3D View. In fact, after I use the keyboard ‘K’ shortcut to choose the knife tool and after I use the actual tool, the cursor goes back to whatever tool I last selected on the tool menu.
Is there a way to link whatever keyboard shortcut I use for a tool to also select the equivalent tool on the tool menu? That way, the tool will stay in active use until I decide to use another tool. Currently, this behavior seems to be counter-intuitive, where there’s a disconnect between the keyboard shortcut and the tool in the tool menu.
