View Full Version : How do you save your panel views?

okay you start a flight, open up all your panels like for radios, gps, etc.. you move them over to a second monitor and then the next time you go to open up a flight you have to do it all over again.. is there a way to get it to save your views and what panels you have open, etc? and where you have them panels placed?

I read quite a bit about this last week, and the concensus was that you CAN'T save these settings.
If I'm wrong, someone please tell me, cause I couldn't find this either.

this would REALLY STINK... because each time I start a new flight right now I have to manually open up all the extra things like Radio Stack, GPS, etc. then I have to UNDOCK the Radio Stack, GPS, etc. and drag them over to the second monitor screen, then once on the second monitor screen resize them to fill the whole screen and make reading easier. This obviously takes some time and to have to do this for EVERY FLIGHT, is crazy...

I imagine you'd find things like THIS to be really a waste of time then...
Really, you don't need to spend nearly as much time setting this stuff up (the process you were describing on your rig) as you do preflighting a real plane, so I don't know what the big deal is.
I often spend 10 minutes setting things up before a flight, this is puny compared to real life...
This IS a simulator and not a game...

The easiest solution is NEVER SHUT FS DOWN! :) What better excuse to fly 24/7.
I believe the open panels is is much like saving with the doors open, it just isn't part of the model that is saved each time. If in the panel.cfg for that aircraft, each windows section has a visable on startup section. Setting that to 1 makes those windows visable at startup, but I suspect that it won't start with them on the second monitor, but it might be worth a try.

well I was able to hit the Alt key once all the panels were set up across the two monitors and save the flight. The next time I want to have the same setup, I just open that same flight, then I can change the Airport I am at and the Time if I want. All the panels open up on both monitors very nicely. Note, I am using Windowed mode so this will not work in Full Screen Mode.. I honestly like Windowed mode better though because you can still access your windows taskbar by moving the mouse down... I have my taskbar set to AutoHide. The only thing I have that remains on screen in windowed mode is the top title bar of flight sim that says like Microsoft Flight Simulatr 2004, but that's no problem at all.. doesn't take up much space..
