I'm following the in-program tutorials and several times it says press {numbers} except when I literally press the numbers, nothing works?

Hi Kelsey,

Sorry for the confusion with the in-program tutorials, which program are you using, and which particular tutorial are you working with that isn't working. 

Are you pressing the number keys, or using a numpad? (If numpad, is NumLock turned on/enabled?)

Get back with more details, and screenshots of the step you're following if possible.

Regards
Pete

What Kelsey means is that it shows the Command ID instead of the keyboard shortcut in the Learn panel.
Also, while editing the screenshots below (in a new document and with the tutorial document opened in a background tab), balloons started popping up with the same kind of bug. The balloons doesn't show after closing the tutorial.

Me too. As a new user this is frustrating. Looks like it's been a problem for over a month now?

Worked for me as well. Can you post the youtube video link? Are there any other commands associated with this command ID numbers?
For instance, we know now that {2207} = CTRL + T, but what about...
{1016} = ?
