    Posted: 15 Dec 2018 at 1:27pm
I'm using the NUM KEYPAD to move datablock but seems to be inverted.  For example to move a datablock to the NW position on my keypad should be a 7, but in the game it requires a "3" keystroke on the NUMPAD.

If I hit "7" it puts the Datablock in the Southwest position.

Logically if I'd want position datablock for South it would seem logical to hit "2" on keypad (the bottom of a NUMPAD on a keyboard).  Instead it requires an input of "8" which is at the top of my keyboard - (seems like "8" logically should be North or 12 o'clock position.)

My keyboard looks like this:

789
456
123


Did the programmers keypad look like this instead? 
123
456
789

Yeah this is an easy fix: on the main program window go to the "Program Settings" tab, then on the left click the "Game Options" button. The 2nd setting can be changed to invert your numpad. (see screenshot)


Also just for fun, here is a real STARS terminal keyboard and you notice they do indeed start with 1 at the top left!

Wow. Since we're getting down to the finer points of a real Tracon item, the real question becomes which way are the toilet paper rolls installed in the restroom? Flap over in front or down under in the back. This is Critical To Aviation Safety. ConfusedConfusedConfused
