On my tablet I don't have a numpad, so I have enabled Emulate Numpad in the user preferences. This allows the normal keyboard numbers to perform the functions their respective numpad number buttons would normally do.

However, this only emulates the numpad numbers, not the other buttons it has such as . (center view on selected) or / (local view). Is there any way I can emulate these (and all the other numpad keys) if I don't have a numpad?

• When Emulate Numpad enabled it's possible to use Back Slash button as Numpad / for Local View. However this doesn't seem to work for period button etc. – Mr Zak Jan 29 '16 at 20:04
• You could enable pie-menus and use the Q-Key (if possible). For local view there is a sub menu called More. – p2or Jan 30 '16 at 10:28

In the Input preferences you can search for key-bindings containing numpad and then adjust the ones you want to use by clicking the key display and choosing another key. The issue is finding a key that isn't used or that you don't make use of, then save your settings so they are always available.
