"Control key" + "Numpad slash key" does not divide

Bug #362040 reported by user on 2009-04-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Division operation works well when using Ctrl+/ shortcut, but not with numerical keyboard.
When I press Ctrl+NUM_SLASH nothing happens.

It is logical to use slash button on numerical keyboard for division operation, not only on letters keyboard.

Confirmed with build 21091, Windows XP sp3.

Strangely, Ctrl+*, Ctrl+- and Ctrl++ work well.

Should work if you add:
<bind key="KP_Divide" modifiers="Ctrl" action="SelectionDivide" display="true"/>
to the share/keys/default.xml file.

Oh! Thank you! It works. My horror days have gone :)

Do you know is it possible to bind keys for objects aligning?
