Should be possible with a panel.cfg edit, but I couldn't tell you specifically what to do, sorry.

Hi Bob, you can always drag it to the new position and then assign a key for it in the PMDG options facility?

If you know how to use a text editor like notepad to edit the panel.cfg file, always make a back up first. Then open the panel.cfg file for the 727-700 and look for the section labeledWindow06 // PMDG_CDU_PANELlook for the following line...window_pos= 0.000 0.000and comment it out by putting a semi-colon in in front if it like this...;window_pos= 0.000 0.000That's it.Keep in mind that I'm pretty sure that this will not be supported by PMDG.

Here is another strategy if you have a wide monitor.Drag the panel right edge to shrink it back to normal proportions. This leaves a piece of unused desktop which not only fits the FMC nicely- but in the 747, allows the lower EICAS Switch Panel popup to be placed on the MCP, just where it belongs.When you're happy, save the flight & reselect it for subsequent flying sessions.Alex ReidExper. Wide monitor simulated on a 4:3 mon. Black rectangles are inactive mons 2&3. Pic also shows triple views on a single screen- a possibility for a large 30-40" HD screen. http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/192975.jpg
