Documentation for 2.8 is currently being updated.

Ctrl + V Open Vertex Menu
Ctrl + E Open Edge Menu
Ctrl + F Open Face Menu
U Open UV Menu
T Toggle Left Toolbar
Shift + A Open Mesh Primitives Menu
Delete

  2. Press Save private key to save the private key to disk.
  3. Copy the public key from the text area box above into the clipboard.
  4. Paste the public key into the Bitbucket > Settings > SSH Keys section on the website.
