I use a software which requires keyboard shortcuts on the NumPad. The number keys above the keyboard won't work. On a MacBook Pro, I used to be able to open the on-screen Keyboard Viewer and click on the keys, but it's not working in Mojave. Now the on-screen keyboard mirrors the laptop keyboard, and only shows the NumPad if I connect a full-size USB keyboard. How can I get the full-size virtual keyboard back?

The can be done via a custom panel in the Accessibility keyboard.

    This is really cool, I didn't know about this feature. Unfortunately it doesn't work. Clicking the NumPad numbers on this virtual keyboard sends the same key command as the top row of numbers.

    @Elliot What is that software for which you need this? Does their support have any ideas? Dec 14, 2020 at 4:24
