I have PhpStorm 6.0 running on Ubuntu 12.04 on a big HP laptop which has a full size keyboard, including a normal numeric keypad on the right. The arrow keys in the main part of the keyboard are small and inconvenient to use. I would like to use the arrows keys that are part of the numeric key pad.
The keys on the numeric keypad normally produce numbers of course but if I hit num lock so num lock is off they become arrow keys. The problem is that in PhpStorm, they scroll the whole edit window up and down rather than move the cursor.
Is there any setting that can change this? I don't know if the problem is specific to this hardware, Ubuntu or what but in other applications such as gedit, Libre Office or a textarea on a web form, the keypad arrow keys work as I want, i.e., they move just the cursor, not the whole window. I've tried the two checkboxes in PhpStorm that are related to scrolling but that doesn't help.
Thanks for a great product.
