Your numpad is used to trigger your superpowers. Here's how it works:
The sidebar shows you at a glance what each of the buttons on your numpad does.
The Editor is where you create and edit your superpowers. It is accessed by pressing the 'Editor' button at the bottom of the sidebar.
Automation is created by dragging and dropping commands into the middle of the editor.
Different menus will make the numpad buttons do different things. This is sometimes described as multiple ‘layers’.
For example, you may have one menu you use to format and insert things in Microsoft Word, and another menu you use to edit photos in Photoshop (like in the picture).

You can fully control your superpowers using keyboard shortcuts - you don't actually need to have a numpad! This is useful if you use a laptop which doesn't have a numpad.
The shortcut editor allows you to assign a shortcut to each of the numpad buttons. Pressing the shortcut will do exactly the same as pressing the corresponding numpad button.
In the picture, numpad 0 is assigned the shortcut ctrl + alt + 0. Therefore, pressing this keyboard shortcut will pop the sidebar in/out – the same as pressing numpad 0.

If you have a USB macropad/shortcut keypad you can use it to control Numpad Superpowers.
Any brand, make or model of shortcut keypad can be used - all you need to do is the following:
Now you no longer need to use the original/native software which came with your macropad/keypad ever again!
