Numpad keys are reserved for style shortcuts, and style shortcuts can only use numpad keys plus a modifier.
That is very strange, as cmd+comma has been my shortcut for "fit in window" for ages in Indesign, and it's only since the CC that it does not work anymore.
- if I change it in illustrator, it works fine there
- if I change it to cmd+star that also works in Indesign (star (*) is also on my num. keys)
- the DEFAULT shortcut for superscript does not work on the num keys.
Where's the logic in that??
What makes you think anything related to Adobe or Apple has a basis in logic?
In a perfect world...
I found this in another thread of you
"OK, NOW edit the keyboard shortcut for Paragraph Break and add NumEnter (press the Enter key on the numpad). If it doesn't register as NumEnter, turn Mumlock on again temporarily and press the key again. Save your custom set."
Made me think and look closer: my cmd+star actually shows up as cmd+ Num star in the shortcutlist, which makes sense now. But the comma and the = do not register that way... why not? WHY? WHY?
Is there a way to force the added "Num" so it will work?
(I now, I should let go by now, but ... )
Well, you could try editing the keyboard shortcuts and make a new set. The quote above sounds like advice I give to users of some PC laptops that are strangely built, but I've never seen a Mac that has the numpad Enter key mapped to the alpha pad by the numlock button...
it was from a PC thread... I do work on Mac
I already made a new set and it appears the only 2 keys not working on Num pad are comma and = (and zero ofcourse) ... Oh well... I'll adapt my set and learn to use a different shortcut. :/
I've looked quite a while for a solution and found one that worked for me.
Just duplicate the standard shortcut-set and save it (give it a name...).
Open the shortcut-set in textedit (on mac it's located at ~username ▸ Library ▸ Preferences ▸ Adobe InDesign ▸ Version 10.0 ▸ en_GB ▸ InDesign Shortcut Sets, for pc I have no idea)
Look for a shortcut by name, for ex 'fitpage' and change the standard 'cmd+0' to 'cmd+#Keyboard_Num 0' and do this (add '#Keyboard_Num ' between + and number for every numerical shortcut. Be sure there is a space after Num!).
Restart Indesign, make sure you are using your custom shortcut set and try them.
