Is there a way to save custom views?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 I have never been real content with X-plane's view system.

I have different views in which are default ones assigned to my joystick. My issue is, once I select a certain view....say outside the aircraft, if I move that selected view to where I want it with the arrow keys, how do I save it from there so it is always where I would like it?  I ask because it doesn't keep it where I want. It always reverts back to default angle when reselecting that view. Thanks in advance.

 

 

Best, Jeff

Position the view, then press control + a number pad number. Now whenever you press that number the view will glide to that position

As yidahoo said. I'll add though, that this is aircraft specific, so you should make this operation for every aircraft you use.

 

There's also a plugin called "active camera", but I never used it so I don't know what are its capabilities:

Is there a way of adding more custom views beyond the number key pad limitation? I mean using more key combos? I never tried it btw.
