yes, you can but there are two disadvantages: one you have to remember always what 5 for example is meant for. The other disadvantage is if you use for example 2 as a mapkey then you cant use 21 or 22 as a mapkey.
Israr, thanks. What I am after is a way to bind a mapkey *specifically* to the number pad keys. For example the function keys are bound to $F1, $F2, etc. Is there a way to bind to the number pad keys in the same way with a different special character?
Thanks Brian. That is very useful info. Macro Magic looks like the solution for now. An additional variable that I didn't mention though is that I would want to role these mapkeys out to an engineer group. From an administrative perspective, one would ideally want the functionality built into ProE instead of having to install and support the utility on all workstations. I logged an SPR with PTC tech support on the issue. He said there was already one there which may be implemented in the next few builds. We'll see. Thanks again.
