Numpad keys won't work in functions.

Prior to this, functions with numpad keys had been working fine. But today I wanted to change some of the keybinds. Now any function using a numpad key won't work. I can use any other key and the function works fine. I tried switching keyboards and the problem persisted, so it's not that.

I also tried to uninstall (Steam), but after reinstalling, my custom functions were still there. So maybe I didn't uninstall correctly?

Anyway, this is driving me nuts. I hope it's a simple fix.

Windows 11, btw.

Hello,

Is your Num Lock key enabled?

Thanks!

I should note that the numpad keys work in any other application.

Hello,

Interesting, what modifier key are you using?

Thanks!

My computer is on, Display Fusion is running, scroll lock is on, numpad works in other apps, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Display Fusion, I've booted into safe mode, it was working fine two days ago, no changes have been made to my system, I have updated Windows and Display Fusion to their current versions, and I have tried all modifer keys. I have also confirmed that the function works if I use any other key but a numpad key. The only thing I haven't done is a format and reinstall of Windows.

Hello,

Could you set your key combination to "Ctrl + 1" using your numpad, and then send me over a copy of your troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:

  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button
  • Reply with the file attached

Thanks!

Shouldn't I switch the logging from disabled to detailed before exporting it?

Rather than wait for your reply, here is the exported info with the log disabled and the log set to detailed.

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over. In both of those files, it's showing the hotkey set to "Shift + Num1". Are you clicking the "Apply" button after adjusting the key combination?

Thanks!

Odd, I don't know how that happened. Now when I try to set the key combo to ctl + numpad1, it says the key combo is already in use. No other Key Combinations are assigned, so I don't know why it would say that.

Hello,

Strange, that key combination shouldn't be reserved by Windows either. Can you try a few combinations and see if they work?

Let's also avoid using shift in the key combination, as it can cause keys to send different key strokes, which can get confusing.

Thanks!
