Greetings,I don't have the 747, but it should be the same as with the 737.I suppose you use one or more separate monitors for the panels. If so, the permanent arrangement of panels works best in window mode (ALT-ENTER). Go into window mode, arrange all views and panels as you like and save the situation as a flight (don't make it the default flight, though).Now when you start up the sim, it comes up with the default C172 in KSEA (which is important for many addons). Then you select your saved flight, move to the airport you want to depart at and off you go.As for the zoom in VC, this is also saved with the flight. Depending on the setup, this also works in full screen mode, but this is a bit more complicated (and, as it doesn't work on my machine, I don't know how to do it anyway).What I described works fine with any addon aircraft I have (quite a lot) and should also work with the 747. Good luck.Boris

Hi,Try this: Look for the entry of the overhead in the panel.cfg. Mine looks like this:[Window02] // PMDG_OVERHEAD_PANELfile=737NG_Overhead_Background_1280.bmp file_1024=737NG_Overhead_Background_1280.bmp size_mm=1280,960window_size_ratio=1.000 position=4visible=0ident=24window_size= 0.260, 0.759window_pos= 0.730, 0.000With the last two parameters you can adjust the size and the position of the window. The values are a fraction of the full size main window, first width, then height. You would want to set the window size to 0.750, 0.750 or so.Cheers Boris
