    Dang another function they took out of the hotkeys.... Hggrrrrrr! I find that so lame, one of the biggest things i hate in BL 2.80 Many functions you tend to use a lot and know it cant get a shortcut.

    PS you forgot to show "Find All" option in the left panel. Than it will look for all missing files in the current active folder. I guess you had it checked, yet you didnt show it.

    Well I had updated it myself already as well in the beginning of this year. Than it was officially update and includes ded in contrib add-ons. I wonder why it still not been admitted though.

    Current version show bugs again
    I fix those myself then
