Hi,I have a question regarding a MCDU issue:Sometimes - after entering a flight plan - there is this white "Displ" illumination at the left...When I then scroll down/up with the FMS-cursor keys this white illum disappears...Could you please explain what this white "Displ" exactly means in this context...?Here is what I mean:pz7lrd2u.jpgzrym7lmg.jpgThanks very much! :)KR

Susan,The DPSLY illuminates whenever the waypoint at the top of MCDU screen (LSK 1) is not the "FROM" waypoint.It is an indication that there are other waypoints before the one you see on the top line.
