FARR v2.77.01 not launching apps from numeric keypad!
« on: August 26, 2009, 05:02:34 PM »
The numeric keypad certainly works in the calculators now, but has stopped working to launch apps altogether!

Can anyone confirm this?

I confirm it. (Alt-numpad works.)

i get confused because of the different options and dif states of the numpad.

anyone want to clarify which config of numpad state and result state (displaying normal list, displaying memo like calculator) is not working and how it should work.

My setup is shown here...

But as you can see when I hit 1 on the numeric keypad FARR starts searching for "1", rather than launch the first history item.

In the memo state (FARR Calc for example) the numeric keypad does produce digits as it should.

and your numpad is turned on right? so if you use it in notepad you see the numbers.

OK in 2.77.02 the numeric keypad does launch applications, and works in the memo view correctly...

BUT now the cursor keys are acting up - eg. pressing the down arrow launches the first search result!

Hope there is an easy fix :)

Thank you for the effort - it is appreciated.

Launches items with the number keys now, and the down-arrow glitch is gone.
Thanks!
