Bug Description

Regular keyboard "+" and "-" shortcuts work just fine, but the D-pad "+" changes the layer outline mode instead. "-" D-pad works properly.

Since the keypad - works the same as the normal keyboard -, it stands to reason the that + behavior should be the same.

On a UK layout keyboard on Linux, the numpad +/- work the same as the +/- on the number row (left of backspace). Numlock does not affect these keys.

Just tested it again, it seems the issue has been already fixed.

Looks fixed to me as well. I'm not sure how this got fixed. I played around with the num-lock key and it doesn't seem to make any difference so I'm going to set the status to fix committed. Please reopen if the problem comes back.
