PT 2019.6 numeric keypad

I'm running PT Ultimate 2019.6 on a 2010 Mac Pro 12 core 2.93 with 24 GB of Ram. HD 8x8x8 IO and PCI-e card, running MacOS 10.13.6 and recently, for no reason, my numeric keypad on my keyboard has stopped working for transport controls. I'm using the Logic Astra backlit PT keyboard.

I've looked in PT preferences, under operations, my numeric keypad is set to transport. Command focus is on. System Preferences, I have shortcuts disabled under keyboard. The only software thing that changed was recently installing 10.13.6 after running 10.12.6 for a long time. I really don't want to waste $75 on a support call if I don't have to. Any ideas what could be causing this?

No idea but I would try "zap the pram"

Shut down your Mac, then turn it on and immediately press and hold these four keys together: Option, Command, P, and R. You can release the keys after about 20 seconds, during which your Mac might appear to restart. On Mac computers that play a startup sound, you can release the keys after the second startup sound

Thanks - I'll try that and see what happens. I've obviously tried rebooting with no success. I can work around the issue, it's just super annoying.

Yes, a workflow killer I,m sure.
Sierra and Pro Tools is/was a good combo, very stable.
