Default Keyboard shortcut woes +1

I'm trying to reset the transport functions to mimic Cubase's behavior. I can't do this entirely because there seems to be no "jump to start of selection" function. ('0/insert' on the num pad toggles stop->jump to start of selection->jump to position 0:00 in Cubase) Kind of showstopper for me.

When I try to set num '/' to 'toggle repeat' (or whatever) it doesn't work while setting num '*' to 'record' did work. (Known bug)

Reaper doesn't distiguish between the 'del' key on the num pad and the other. Setting up the num pad for transport functions is quite dangerous then because the 'del'-key may delete things.

make sure you have numlock off or on try both.
also i noticed some num pad keys arent registering, then USE ANOTHER KEY!!! or mbe num pad key reading needs to be fixed?

hey i read you post about 30 min into reaper and frustrated already. well, i always spend about 16 hours testing a new daw whereby i then know the whole thing and all capabilities, always out of DESPERATION to solve core features i need and then find in that new daw. (ableton live was the last one i got excited about, until the end of tests proved its GUI is totally not for 24 track live sound, just djs, and track editing terrible.... but it was about the free routing and solo assign like a real board...)

and along this train of thought, surely you know that, the main thing to request busy programmers on a great daw like this, is to tackle the CORE issues first, not bog them or forums down initially with requests of user friendly right out of the box.

edit: [broken keyboard shortcuts are close to a core feature, ok... but making the whole thing "loser friendly" as i call it when reminiscing about macintosh os... hehe, with out of the box apparent ease of use...? anyway]

i wish you patience and, get to know the software for awhile.

-cheers

There are quite some bugs related to keyboard shortcuts. I reported this some time ago: http://www.cockos.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8122

There is also a workaround in the thread.

I can only add a +1 (again) for finally fixing this.

Thanks for the wishes! Currently I'm collecting evidence for an upcoming argument about how crappy Reaper is because that's the way another guy became a Reaper aficionado and learned it faster. Regarding "core features first", you're right but then the skin feature pops into the mind...

Yes I did read the thread, hence the "+1" in the title, I thought I raise the pressure on that by making another thread..
The importance of things like this might not be obvious for everybody but if you used certain keys for almost 2 decades you really want to keep that layout you're used to. Otherwise you'll hit the wrong ones whenever your brain is busy with something different.
