Bugs in hotkey assignments - cannot differentiate NumPad hotkeys.


Hi, there!

I am starting a new, clean EESchema - latest git of today.
The default Hotkeys are Zoom In = F1, Zoom Out = F2, etc...

Issue 1:
I was planning to change the Zoom In/Out hotkeys in Preferences - Schematic Editor Options - Controls to use
Zoom In = NumPad + and Zoom Out = NumPad -

The issue is, that the Set Hotkey dialog actually recognizes the NumPad +/- keystroke and closes, but it doesn't accepted the Hotkey assignments. F1 and F2 still stays as before without further notice.

Using the non-NumPad + and - keys seem to work, but they might be used in a different way later on as these are just different keys.
So, why doesn't Kicad recognize the NumPad Keys, why doesn't Kicad regognize different keys as such?

Issue 2:
The Tooltips of the Zoom buttons don't get updated with the newly assigned keys. The still show F1 and F2 for the zooming whereas + and - was assigned.
Can we fix that?
