You could always move diagonally. - even without numberic keypads there was a virtual layout for moving the 8 directions on the keyboard. It's been a long time so I forget the exact keys, but it was something like iop jkl nm,

And I just looked it up:

hjkl for the four standard directions and "yu" and "bn" for diagonals.

It's been a while since I played without a keyboard

Yes, that's the roguelike keyset (vi-style keys), if that's what you had in mind. You have to activate it explicitly in the options though, because these keys are already used for other commands in the standard keyset.

You mean without a numeric keypad I guess?

If you're old enough to have used a 10-key adding machine then the keypad is almost automatic. Middle finger on the 5, then it's a short movement to hit any of the directions. The little raised bump on the 5 is there so you can find it easily.

Being a laptop user, without the benefit of a numpad, I set the "movement delay" in the user options to about 11 or 12 ms. Then I can simultaneously press two arrow keys to move diagonally. E.g., up arrow + left arrow = diagonal movement to the north-west. (Well, until my left arrow key stopped working. )

Wow. This is awesome lifehack for laptops without numpad, thanks! =)

(Anyway, proud roguelike keyset user here. I have already trained myself to associate j/k with up/down even if they are not in the correct shape...)
I have a standard generic keyboard. Using the number pad.

7(up-left) 8(up) 9(up-right)

4(left) 5(stay) 6(right)

1(down-left) 2 (down) 3 (down-right)
