Add-ons reload through the F8 key shot

Add-ons are not reloaded by pressing the F8 key in the Preferences – Add-ons window in Blender 2.83. The add-ons reload function call with this key shot was no longer tied starting with Blender 2.80.

To bind the add-ons reloading to the F8 key shot again:

  1. Open the “Preferences” window
  2. Open the the “Keymap” section
  3. Expand the “Screen – Screen (Global)” branch
  4. Press the “Add new” button at the bottom of the list
  5. In the operator identifier field, type “script.reload”
  6. Click on the keyboard field and press F8 to bind this key to the specified operator call
  7. Press the “Save Preferences” button to save new settings
