Default Bugs with keyboard shortcuts on num pad (further investigated)

As reported in other threads some reassigned keyboard shortcuts on the num pad do not work. I took a closer look cause I really want this to work:

- Reassigning "+" and "-" does not work because Reaper always (additionally) sets three key assignments:

+ (Num Pad) View: Zoom in horizontal
- (Num Pad) View: Zoom out horizontal
Shift+0 Item Properties: Pitch item up one semitone

You can check this by removing all shortcuts and restarting Reaper or storing and loading an empty keyboard shortcuts file.

- "/" can not be assigned: I guess this is a problem related to my german keyboard layout. In the shortcut description it shows only " (ZEHNERTASTATUR)" and not "/ (ZEHNERTASTATUR)" as expected. Also the Find function does not find the assignment. The "/" key sends: Virtual Key = 6F, Scan Code = 135

- "," (which is "." on an english layout) can not be assigned: This may also be a problem related to my german keyboard layout, but it may be also something different because it works randomly. The shortcut description looks fine: " KOMMA (ZEHNERTASTATUR)" as expected. The "," key sends: Virtual Key = 6E, Scan Code = 053

Hope this helps fixing the problem.

This problem still exists in the current 1.875. Could you please fix this?! Fancy skinning is nice but this is really essential to me.

Some additional info:

The key (/) only works when using ReaperScript.

The key (.) and (5) only work with shift pressed, or num lock off.

And yes, the keyboard _ and + are the same as the keypad...so if you change one, both are changed.

This bug has been around a while btw Moss, before my time anyway (Xmas).

Yes. Actually I am working around this by using AutoHotkey (which is also used by ReaperScript) to remap the / key to L. But I dislike running another background task on my audio workstation.

I know and it got also reported by several people on this forum. So I do not understand why such a simple thing doesn't get fixed (with tons of brilliant updates every week).

If someone wants to use my workaround:
- Get Autohotkey: www.autohotkey.com
- Use the following script:

#IfWinActive,ahk_class REAPERwnd
NumpadDiv::l
NumpadDot::Home
NumpadDel::Home


This remaps the / key on the num pad to "l" which I assigned to looping on/off. The "." on the num pad triggers the Home key.

Thanks for that, I'm just starting with AHK.

There are also some keys that aren't working on Croatian keyboards in VMK. Probably action list as well, but didn't bother to check.


Reaper should SO have all the keymaps supported internally, to the fullest extent.
