  • Number buttons cannot be assigned to any hotkey!

    I have been playing Dota 2 for a year, and I have been using the following keys for my items: Z-X-C-4-5-6.
    However I am playing another game, and i have finished a few games before without restarting Dota 2, and suddenly the buttons 1 through 0 cannot be assigned for any kind of hotkeys. In the game it says to use 4-5-6, but after a few i actually tried to use V-B-N and it works for the items that i have which was blink dagger dagon and ghost scepter, EVEN when the top right corner of those items marks the numbers 4-6.
    I completed that game and restarted dota 2, and temporarily set items hot keys for Z-X-C-V-B-N. They work fine. But when I try to assign any numbers to ANY hotkeys such as abilities, control group, and even chat, the '-' key appears, which is what happens when i press Esc or the right mouse click.
    This is the worst possible thing that can happen to me because I have benn playing a lot of Tinker and i need to be able to use all 6 active items. The new item keys assignment is weird for me and i am starting to do horribly.
    Please help! Thanks!
