PC Keyboard input keeps on switching

Hi all,

I’m having some trouble with my Apple Magic Keyboard’s numeric keypad shortcuts in Dorico I’m using a Windows 10 PC (22H2) with an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor.

The issue is that the numeric keypad keys sometimes change the information they send to Dorico. For instance, hitting a specific key might input Num+3 one day, but then switch to Num+PgDown the next day, messing up my shortcuts.

I’ve tried restarting Dorico and my PC, but the problem persists. I’m wondering if anyone else has encountered this with the Apple Magic Keyboard on Windows? Any advice on how to get consistent behavior from the numeric keypad shortcuts would be greatly appreciated!


I found the solution: I had mapped the clear key (top left of the numeric key pad) to another shortcut. What I didn’t know was that the clear key also functions as the NumLock key. Hitting that key will change the input data as described above.
