FS is crazy sometimes on that. It works for me, but I know many individuals that have this issue on a lot of aircraft.I am actually counting days to see how long before someone releases a panel add-on for the T7 that opens the secondary doors :-) Seen this on almost every other addon :-)What I do on mine, though, is press the SHIFT+E, and just as soon as I release those keys I press "2" a few times quickly. This usually works. Same for pushbakcs, which can be weird in FS, as a lot of times the AC will not turn with default pushback methods unless you nail the number key a few times immediately after pressing SHIFT+P.Hope this helps.

FastfreddyI looked but could not find it ... ####!!! There is a Cargo Door "gauge" which lets you add a "CARGO" button whereever you want (I have it installed on the overhead to the left of the ADIRU). I use it on all my aircraft where there is not an option to set keys to the various doors ... works fine on 737s and the 767 ... also works fine on this newly updated T7.Sorry I can't give you a filename ... but you can find it on AVSIM library.Good Luck!!!

Guys,It is the Shft+ combination FS doesn't like. Change your door to something like o and then do o+2 for the cargo and FS likes it much better...-PaulLiquid CooledAMD 4000 San Diego2 Gigs Kingston Corsair XMS CL2Dual 7800 GTX 24 inch widescreen dual 19 inch LCDRaid-0psolksig.jpg

That's it Christopher!!!!!!For those of us who have never been able to open cargo doors with shift this or that or whatever ... hahahaha ... a very handly little piece of software.

Aye, I do like how it blends in with almost any panel by it's simple button nature. I really like that.And I knew about the re-mapping bit, too, but I always like the idea of knowing it will work every time without fiddling with key combos :-)

Even more scary is the fact that you can open all the doors in flight. You would have that MS would have disabled that option - or am I being too hopeful.Can't see many people wanting to parachute from a T7 at altitude (might be airline dependant of course!!*:-* Rick
