Num Lock

Mouser, that was great, but it doesn't work on 'Num Lock' keys... :(
It would be much easier...

Thanks

ah good idea - right now it uses arrow keys to navigate but i can see some people wanting to use keypad for launching no matter what.

so is that what you are asking for - even when numlock is not toggled, you want pressing the 2 to always launch result#2?

No, i mean the number keys on the 'num lock' don´t work, only the others. I would like to write on the bar with the number keys from the num lock, because they are close to each other and it's much more faster and easier.

im still unclear about this - i did add as per our discussions, the ability to use the numpad keys.
but the numpad keys can operate in two mode according to whether nulock is on or off.

when it is off the keys act like arrows moving the cusor.

so could you be more specific about how you want the numpad to behave in both of these modes?

When 'Num Lock' is on, i should be able to write the numbers with these keys
    

But i can only write with these

maybe you have the following box checked?
i think what you want is to uncheck it, which will let you type numbers when numlock is on.  works for me.  if it doesn't work for you, do you have a non-english keyboard maybe?

the option lets you choose between whether to use the numpad to either launch results by # or type numbers when numlock is on:
np.png

that should do what you want.  however it occurs to me that another option might be desired, which is to always act like numlock is on, even when it isn't; i think i will add that next.
