After recent upgrading 2.79 none of navigation controls are working properly, eg. instead of going through camera perspective with num 0 it opens a layer.

Same is with changing from perp to ortho with num 5. I tried resetting input to Blender and also tried loading factory defaults.

First, make sure that your numeric keypad is enabled (press the Num Lock key).

Also check that you are using the default blender shortcuts: Open the System Preferences (CtrlAltU) and in the input section reset the preset to Blender

Alternatively you can set the keyboard configuration at the splash screen (where it reads "Interaction" :

Or just use File>Load Factory Settings on the main menu.

  • $\begingroup$ If it works with older versions and not on new ones it could be a bug. Please read: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/1377/… $\endgroup$
