FMC and keyboard

Recommended Posts

Mike Ray's book on flying Boeings states that PMDG allows us to enter data into the FMC by using the QWERTY keyboard. I can't find any information on that. Is it possible?Scott

Hi Scott,just click with the mouse the vertical bar right to the letter keys. Now you can you use your QWERTY keyboard. Click again to turn it off.When QWERTY keyboard is activated in the lower right of the FMC display KBD is displayed.HTHPeter

And just keep in mind that when "KBD" is enabled, some "normal" keyboard functions will not work until you disable again the "KBD"-function as all the keyboard-pushes are send to the scratchpad of the CDU and will not go to the Sim itselfs;-)
