Option to select keyboard without numeric keypad

Post by Epsteyn »

Hi!

I'm using a keyboard without a numeric keypad and it is very annoying to select, unselect or select all files ( "+", "-" and "*"), because of the absence of those keys in my new TKL keyboard. I am aware of the possibility of create macros to use those functions, but I think it would be very nice to have an option to select different keyboard types in one of the config menus. Selecting a TKL keyboard in the menu configuration, for instance, could make available other keys to execute the functions I have mentioned above.

Regards,
JCE

What you're suggesting is actually adding a keyboard profile. And yes, keyboard macros effectively let you add one. The missing piece IMHO is a predefined set of macros (in %FARHOME%\Addons\Macros\) that users can “install” by simply copying to their profile's Macros\scripts directory.

I think he is talking about something like this:

Code: Select all

╔══════════╤════════════════════════╤══════════╤══════════════╗
║ Area     │  Description           │   Key    │              ║
╟──────────┼────────────────────────┼──────────┼──────────────║
║ Panels   │  Change drive (left)   │   AltF1  │  [Change...] ║
║ Editor   │  Search                │   F7     │  [Change...] ║
║ ...      │                        │          │              ║
╚══════════╧════════════════════════╧══════════╧══════════════╝
But behind the scenes it can still use macros.

(emphasis mine)

P.S.
And the standard Macro Browser plugin provides functionality
