CapShift - NumLock on IBM ThinkPads
« on: May 20, 2007, 11:29:01 AM »
On a ThinkPad (maybe other notebooks), NumLock shares a key with ScrollLock.  You select Numlock by Shift-ScrollLock.  CapsShift doesn't see the NumLock.  I'm guessing that it comes in looking like a Shift-NumLock.

Similarly, but less importantly, CapShift doesn't see Shift-CapsLock.

Windows treats both Shift-NumLock and Shift-CapsLock as though they were unshifted.

Thanks for the great gadget -- Vincent

 :) I never thought of the possibility. Are you saying that when you press Shift-CapsLock, CAPshift starts counting? On my PC it toggles CapsLock directly, being ignored by CAPshift.

No, I'm not saying that.  As I said "CapShift doesn't see Shift-CapsLock". My Shift-CapsLock acts just as yours. Is that really your intention?

But my main point was that CapShift doesn't work with the only NumLock I have on my notebook PC.  I was guessing that it is because the only way I can "press" Numlock looks like Shift-NumLock.  I'm not sure.  What I know is that CapShift doesn't work with NumLock and I "press" NumLock using Shift-ScrollLock.  (Maybe this is why the newer Lenovo ThinkPads have switched to Fn-ScrollLock.)
