but look... we usually have two "-" keys in our keyboards, one in the numeric pad and the other one on the numeric row that is above the letter keys. when using virtual calculator... one behaves as "-" and the other as "+/-".
I'd also like to have the "-" key that is in the numeric pad to act as the regular "minus sign", but I guess this is just the way things are now, hopefully future versions of the virtual calculator change that. I hope you find this useful.

Thanks Spybot, that was what I was doing untill fhub posted next thread

The line in any *.skin file for this is:
key=27,85,518,128,553,{109},{},{},["m""M"] #chs

109 is the scancode for the key <Num-> (on the numeric keypad), if you change this number to 189 then #chs is mapped to the regular minus key, and <Num-> works again as #minus.


YESSSSS FRANZ.... thanks a lot.. this is the solution I was looking for. I have made the changes and now all is working as I expected.

But now a new problem ... my natural concern and willingness to learn want to know what I've done ....

As indicated skyblues, I think it would be very interesting to know the internal structure for the skin files.
