    Default Instrument Panel Too Large

    I just started using P3Dv4. The instrument panel looks as though my face is way too close to it. I know that you can temporarily move the eyepoint back with control+enter but re-centering TrackIr moves it back too close again. Is there a way to permanently move the eyepoint back to a more realistic point? I don't want to set the view to less than 100% because the panel may look smaller but the scenery is further away.

    Default Wide

    yes there is, I presume you are using multi monitors there is a switch in the .cfg: WideViewaspect= listed under [DISPLAY] change from False to True.
    In v4 it may have a listings in the settings, you may still need to tweak the eye point a little.

    Not sure if the assignment exists in p3d (I use Fsx) but if it does, use assignment for:
    "Look Forward (3D Cockpit)"

    See my post here:

    It is in all FSX based .cfg's I have used it in FSX FSXSE P3D v3/ v5 in my cockpit which sports 3x 32in curved monitors as the main view.

    Are you talking about the default VC view? If so, you can make a custom camera view to set to your liking. It requires adding one to the aircraft.cfg file, takes a little experimenting but worth it. Look up making camera views on the web

    Default

    <Contr + Space> = "eyepoint Reset"
    that does two things:
    It resets the view to 'forward'
    but it also resets the eyepoint (seat position) and zoom level.
    So if you had moved the eyepoint and changed zoom level in flight then using "<Shift + Enter>" those things will now be reset,
    and you will have to adjust your eyepoint and zoom level again.

    A better command to use is:
    "Look Forward (3D Cockpit)"
    With that command the eyepoint or zoom level stay as they are. It only resets the view to "Forward".

    I have "Look Forward (3D Cockpit)" assigned to a joystick button, and use it all the time.

    I still have "eyepoint Reset" assigned to <Contr + Space>.
    Comes in handy as well but I don't use it nearly as much.

    That will work on a single wide screen but not across multi monitors and I said at the beginning that I was presuming he had 3 monitor in stretch mode, which he has not clarified as yet, if he has then those settings you use will not go anywhere far enough to correct the panel or POV but the WideViewaspect remains until altered back.
    Those setting you suggest still work with 3 monitors stretched, I used them for a long time on my yoke for a long time along with buttons to switch easily between Lock spot and VC all my other switching are set into my full working cockpit.
