Alternative Hotkeys for use without a Numpad

Post by rs3d » Mon 08 May, 2017 15:30

My new laptop has no Numpad (and no special FN key for that reason), so is there a way to use the Numpad commands like "File Select (Gray +)" with an alternative hotkey? I couldn't find a list to edit them by myself... Thank you!

You can use macros to reassign hotkey.
Ctrl+. Ctrl+. F1

Create yourself a macrofile as follows (make changes if necessary):

Code: Select all

local tt = {
  ["Ctrl="] = "Add";
  ["Ctrl-"] = "Subtract";
  ["Ctrl8"] = "Multiply";
  ["Ctrl/"] = "Divide";
}

local arr={}; for k in pairs(tt) do table.insert(arr,k) end

Macro {
  description="Reassign keys";
  area="Common"; key=table.concat(arr, " ");
  priority=100;
  action=function() Keys(tt[akey(1)]) end;
}
