Numeric Keypad keys not working

Numeric Keypad keys not working

Postby simonassouline on Sat Nov 09, 2013 3:33 pm


Love sublime ! best editor I've used :D .

My Windows computer numeric keypad keys will not work in sublime text 3. If I go to another window say notepad they work, come back to sublime they don't work.

I have these packages installed:
- Package Control.sublime-package
- Alignment.sublime-package
- DocBlockr.sublime-package
- Laravel 4 Snippets.sublime-package
- LiveStyle.sublime-package
- Phix Color Scheme.sublime-package
- Theme - Soda.sublime-package

is there any way to fix this.

I can confirm that they work in ubuntu

In the ST console, enter "sublime.log_input(True)". Then press the numeric keypad keys. What comes up in the console?

I'm having a similar issue on a fedora box, only over VNC. has anyone else seen this?

when i type my keypad keys (and enable input logging) it shows they come is as shift+(their non-num lock function) so for example 2 is (shift+down).

This is with numlock on, with numlock off they take on their non-numlock functionality (2 is just down).

I commented out the shift+(x) functionality in the key definition file and now i get the straight numbers in, but i can't do shift down, up, left, right, pgup/pgdn etc etc.

This is on a VM, and on the console it does not behave this way just over VNC.

also other text editors don't have this problem over VNC.

Did anyone solve this problem already as I'm running into the same problem connecting to an Ubuntu desktop with a remote desktop connection and using Sublime Text 3. With numlock on, the keys register as SHIFT+(non-numlock) and with numlock of they register just as the non-numlock function. All the other programs that I run don't have this problem.
