Question Belkin N52 KeyPad Problem: "Ctrl+e" or "Ctrl+Shift+e" does not want to work in Maya

Hi all !

Ok, i've choose the n52 Belkin Speedpad, and I've tried to assign a new macro who recreate the same action than press at the same time "Ctrl + e" or "Ctrl + Shift + e"; but it does not seems to work !!! I'm really desapointed by that problem, because I need to create that type of macro to use it with Maya, 3ds MAX or Modo interface, who need many combination of that type.

Do I'm limited to just 1 key pressed at one time ?
Do they can acquire 2 key pressed at the same time ?

I don't have one but did look at it a little while ago.

For your problem, can you try using the 'Delay Adjust' button in the software to set the delay for all keys to 0 seconds?

It may not be ideal, but if that doesn't work, can you set 'Ctrl' to one button on the pad and 'e' to another button on the pad and press both pad buttons at one to make it work?

I was thinking about getting one of these so would be interested to learn if this is a limitation.

I've done that.... Assign to a key "z key" and to another "ctrl key" and it works for "undo action". But as you know Maya as many controls and tool, and I want to just use 1 finger than 2 .

So I've try to do that macro on 04 Button of the N52 keypad:

Press Ctrl Key
Press e Key
Delay 0.25 second
Release e Key
Release Ctrl Key

and the Undo wasn't applied.

So I dont know what to do...

Just a thought, but have you assigned your changes under a profile and then selected that profile or as the default loadout?
