Description Thomas Lübking 2015-12-24 22:19:20 UTC
QKeySequence (ie. the local action system) doesn't distinguish between them and (thus?) KKeySequenceButton and the other suspects do neither (you get "Ctrl++" whether you used the alphanum or the num block to enter it)

In a way this is a regression (because one could distinguish years before and the keys are treated different by X11 and Qt sets the Qt::KeypadModifier on the event, but status quo is that the mentioned numeric block keys are virtually dead as shortcuts.

So better take them as equivalent?

Reproducible: Always

Numpad keys are now treated differently.

And for kglobalaccel, the patches are up:
