Ban NumPad keys

Postby BAZOOKA » Tue Jun 04, 2013 3:22 pm

I am currently using a laptop, and of course it does not provide number pad functions. Should Algodoo remove NumPad functions for easier usage, and so that more people can get to the functions they need?

No.

More and more laptops have a number pad now-a-days, and where they don't provide a dedicated number pad, there is always a FN alternative.

The number pad is an amazing control method, making certain cases 10x easier, e.g. advanced control of robotics.
If you ever find a scene you want to try, you can either use the FN keypad, or change the hinge options.

You don't take away features because of the 1%.

Not everyone can swim, so can we ban swimming pools?

Not everyone can read, so can we ban books?

Not everyone can tell time, so can we ban clocks?

What your asking for is fairly impractical, especially since you can just rebind the keys to something else.

Next time buy an USB office keyboard and connect it.

Usually, you can press FN and the blue numbered keys, they should be the standard 789 keys, as well as the rows below them.
