OS X Use numeric keypad for navigation

Hello, Folks,

I am used to being able to use the numeric keypad for to move around in my editors. Slickedit supports this by allowing the user to press the Num Lock key on an external keyboard.

Is there any way to accomplish the same thing in PyCharm? Using the arrow keys and 6-key navigation keypad is a hassle for someone who has been programming since the 1980s.

Thank you,

After much googling, I found an app named Karabiner (https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/) that allows me to use the numeric keypad to move the cursor. On the "Change Key" tab I expanded "For PC Users" and then expanded "Use KeyPad as Arrow (PC Style NumLock). Then I checked "Enable KeyPad as Arrow". See the attached screen shot.
