Catia Numpad Aix 7.1

Hi, numbers on my numpad don't work. Does anyone know how to make them work?
I'm used to inputing dimensions on numpad because its faster.

I'm working on Catia v4 on Aix 7.1.
Ty for your help.

(CATIA V4 on Unix - good memories!)

To use the numeric keypad, make sure the NUM LOCK button is on. On my keyboard, it's the button directly above the 7 button. When the light in on, you can use the keypad.

Hi, that's the first thing I checked. numpad works with terminal and vi but not in catia. can I check in some catia settings file if numpad is disabled or maybe its maped to some functions?
