I'm on a new MacBook, and naturally it lacks the numpad and set of control keys (pgup, pgdwn, etc.). This causes a slight hiccup in the editor, as these keys are essential to use Ned. Any way to get around this?

I'm not on a mac, so my best bit of advice would be so:

onscreen keyboard, or usb external keyboard.

Yeah, that's about all that'll work.

Are you sure that it lacks some keys like "page up" and "page down".

I don't think i have ever seen a keyboard lack those keys, even on my laptops tiny one.

It might be under an overlay setting where you have to click a key and it changes keys on your keyboard to different ones. My laptop works like that. It has a numpad where the middle keys are.

I don't think there's a pageUp or pageDown key anywhere on the MacBook keyboard, if that image is of the right keyboard. That's really strange.
You'd best get another keyboard or an onscreen keyboard.

Hi. Not that it matters since these forums are practically dead, but this thread is from years ago aaaaand on-screen keyboards were already mentioned. You just did this sort of a thing in a bunch of threads, so yeah, please check the date first.

I'll jump in, seeing as no-one has yet:

fn + m is keypad 0
fn + backspace/delete is keypad delete/point/period
fn + left arrow key is the 'home' key, I believe.
About 25% of any of my 'N time' is spent on a mac; I should know these things.
What's a signature?
