|I understand the problem with not having a numeric keypad, and not being able to customise keys in general, so what I have done as a compromise is this:|
Previously there were no Alt+X keys excepting where X was one of the menu keys. eg. Alt+F opened the File menu, same as in any Windows application.
In version 3.42, I have added 17 new programmable keys, namely Alt+X where X is any key except those on the menu (ie. except F, E, V, C, I, D, G, W, H - for the File, Edit, View, Connection, Input, Display, Game, Window and Help menus respectively).
This means, for instance, you can now make Alt+A do anything you want (see configuration -> Macros section).
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a group of keys that naturally suggest movement where one isn't in the group above, however O, K, L and M are pretty close (M is slightly to one side).
So, all you need to do is program O = north, K = west, L = east and M = south, and then press Alt whilst hitting them.
Thus with the 14 extra keys on the numeric keypad introduced recently, and these extra 17, you have quite a few keys you can program for your own use.
