Number pad keys are identical to similar non-number pad keys in trigger list

(I started this as a feature request but now think it's a bug)

Describe the bug

Under keyboard settings, triggers that are number pad keys are not identified differently from keys of the same character that are not on the number pad when shown in the triggers column. Also, triggers that are number pad keys without any modifier keys are not shown at all in the triggers column if "Show notes instead of description" is checked. These problems happen both if the standard line is shown for the trigger and if the note is displayed. Thus is is not possible, when looking in the trigger column, to know whether the shortcut is a number pad key or the same symbol not on the number pad.

In most, perhaps all, other places in BTT, number pad keys are shown prepended by a [PAD] icon. They should also be displayed with a [PAD] icon in the trigger column. Also, triggers with shortcut keys but no modifier should show up in the triggers column.

Note: Before bug reporting, please make sure you have tried the latest (alpha) version of BetterTouchTool and that you have already tried to restart your system :-). If you encounter a crash, please attach a crash log from the macOS from the "User Diagnostic Reports" section.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
