I would like to code an addon that emulates the numpad.
This would simply sit as a small toolbar in the toolshelf as a small group of buttons.
This should improve the workflow in that it allows the right hand to stay on the mouse instead of the moving to the numpad.
I know about 3D_Navigation addon however this implements specific default numpad operations.
I would like this addon to trigger the numpad key event to allow userprefs keybindings to remain as normal.
That’s my reasoning here is my problem.
It appears that the interface only responds to OS specific keyboard events and that triggering them is totally OS dependent.
Is this the case or is there somewhere in the API some way of triggering a keypress event.
I have googled and searched all over and it so far appears that it is OS specific and python API doesn’t provide the functionality.
