After setting up a keyboard shortcut by hitting the a numerical key on the top of a standard querty keyboard in the keyboard shortcuts settings panel, both the numericalkey as well as the numpadkey representing the same number trigger this new shortcut. For example, pressing the '1'-key on the top of the keyboard together with alt to assign a shortcut results in the same keystroke as pressing the 'numpad1'-key together with the same alt-key. This is not what I would expect, because these are two different keys with no technical connection. Treating both keys as the same limits the amount of keystrokes we can assign. It's also errorprone, because we don't expect the alt+'numpad1' to trigger an action we assigned the alt+'1' (1 on the top of the keyboard). So it seems like Affinity doesn't store the key-code, but the key-value to bind a keyboard shortcut. But it should store the key-code instead to assign the right key only.  Another problem caused by this is what I'm facing right now: I have a rotation assigned to Alt+2 (addressing the regular '2' key on the top of the keyboard). But when I'm in a textframe and want to enter a special character by using an alt code sequence (so while holding Alt hitting a code-sequence like numpad-0, numpad-2, numpad-3, numpad-3 to have a 'é'-symbol) the alt-way to enter a symbol doesn't work anymore AND the canvas will rotate. And that's obviously not what should happen here. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a connection between this one and the no-difference-between-alt-keys Issue I reported earlier. Maybe the same solution could fix both? That would be nice! Thanks in advance!
Trying to assign keyboard shortcuts to my character styles, I've discovered that the numeric keyboard input is interpreted as regular numbers. This has been checked against different keyboards (apple and 3rd party) This greatly reduces the availability of keyboard shortcuts to use with styles, as most of numbers are already assigned to other functions, specially on command+number combinations. Command+numeric keyboard is a great way to arrange shortcuts for styles. If this is not a bug, I suggest to allow Publisher to detect the difference between the two types of numbers, as is the case on InDesign, where numeric keyboard numbers are identified as such. (I know, i know, comparisons are not the point here, but…)
I created shortcuts for moving (arranging) layers up/down ctrl+numpad0 and ctrl+numpad1 because I use it for years now in different applications. First problem: the preferences / keyboard shortcuts pane doesn't show if it conflicts with zoom shortcuts !! Second problem: the shortcuts doesn't work at all.
By default the number keys set opacity - which is fine. BUT AD doesn't distinguish between the standard numbers and the numeric keypad, to which I'd really like to assign a bunch of other shortcuts. With 15 keys on the numpad, and at least 3 different modifiers, there are >45 keyboard shortcuts going to waste here! Also, under the current system, if I do set a numeric keypad numeral as a shortcut, it doesn't warn me that there is an existing clash with the opacity function... worst of both worlds! Thanks for your consideration.
