Default Apple wireless keyboard and trackpad - shortcut problems

I recently got an apple wireless keyboard and trackpad and now a load of my shortcuts are not working - for example cmd & 9 for "show video", Enter for "memory location, and most annoyingly for me - change grid value - ctrl & option & - /+
Does anyone know of a workaround or am I stuck with it? I tried adding the shortcuts in the keyboard section of apple preferences but it doesn't seem to be working.

Any help massively appreciated

Thanks
Steve

First time I've heard of such problem. I also use wireless and have had zero problems (if you don't count that it's only a mini keyboard without numpad).

Double-check that you have correct keyboard layout set up in the system preferences.

It seems to be set up fine as far as I can tell. So the shortcuts like cmd& 9 for video window work for you on the wireless keyboard?

Is there anything you can think of in the keyboard setup that I might have missed?

thanks
Steve

No I think you have set it up properly.

I don't work with video right now so it's hard for me to test it, but command-7 which should open the video universe instead links the three edit buttons in the edit window. So this mini keyboard apparently does not work as expected.

Yup, Command-7 is for the Smart tool on my keyboard. I think the problem is that all the numeric keyboard shortcuts aren't there (due to the lack of a number pad!), just the keyboard ones. I'm kind of stumped by the "Change grid value" shortcut not working though.

So any idea how I could find a work around? Wireless is the only practical setup in my studio at the moment!
Thanks
Steve

If your keyboard doesn't have a numeric keypad, does adding the Fn (function) key to the command work?

i.e. fn cmd& 9 for video window ?

Thanks for that, unfortunately not. Fn & enter works for a marker so you'd think it would be something like that, but no joy!

They make a wireless number pad that attaches to the wireless keyboard.
