Hotkeys not migrating from 5.99 to 6.0

When starting version 6.0.0 for the first time, I chose to import settings from previous 5.99 version, but I’ve noticed that the hotkeys were not imported.

Version 6.0.0 doesn’t exist yet. Copy the version info by using Help -> About -> Copy version info and paste it here.

We do not import hotkeys between versions (even as the version changes from 5.99 to 6.0 as we get close to release. This is because we have no way of automatically resolving any resulting hotkey conflicts right now. There is an open feature request to support hotkey migration that we may address at some point. For now, you need to use the Import Hotkeys button in the Hotkeys preferences, and select the user.hotkeys file in your 5.99 configuration directory.
