Number pad in Putty

Posted by grigsby on July 6, 2007

The number keypad in Putty normally works fine. Until you launch Vi(m). Then it is basically useless. Hitting ‘0’ on the keypad prints out a ‘p‘, Hitting ‘1’ prints out a ‘q‘, etc. This has always bothered me, but I’ve never taken the time to resolve it. Today I did. Turns out you need to select ‘Disable application keypad mode’ in the Putty Configuration – Terminal – Features. Doing this makes the number pad work correctly in both the shell and Vi(m).

    So, this has also bothered me for a long, long time – but my putty options don’t mention a disable (if it does, i can’t see it). I just downloaded the .60 Win32 Binary and it also doesn’t have it… Do you have an older version?
