Wish: support for Keyboard shortcuts on Numpad

With NumLock on, the NumPad is just another way to enter numbers, right?
Yet for some reason, assigning commands in Rhino Options > Keyboard to CTRL-1,2,3,4,5,… works on the normal number keys, but not in the NumPad.

What I want to achieve is to use the NumPad for viewport switching (Top, Front, Left,…), like I do in various other 3D programs. 5: Top, 4: Left, 6: Right, 2: Front, and so on. I don’t mind having to use modifier keys also (CTRL, whatever).

Yet in Rhino, like I said, CTRL-5 etc. on the NumPad is not accepted, even with NumLock on. I can’t see any good reason for this.
Should be an easy fix, I guess.

Best regards


Hi Eugen- I see that - I have no idea if it is an easy fix, but I’ll put it on the pile- thanks.

Thanks, Pascal!
I had to chuckle imagining the size of that pile…

Best regards

Would it get easier to have this fixed if the shortcuts assigned to numkeys are the same as on the numpad?
As long as the numpad works, it is great!
I never use the shortcuts on the numkeys, since they are inconvenient to reach, therefore all fine if they are exactly the same as on the numpad - just kind of linking the #1 key on numkeys to #1 key on numpad. Issue fixed.

Kind regards,
