The INIT button for X-Plane 11's 737 FMC

Recommended Posts

Can someone advise me how to bring up the FMC INIT screen in X-Plane 11?  All the FMC tutorials start out with hitting that button to initialize new settings.  X-Plane has an official video showing the new layout.  In the video there are apparently clicks to get there, but no narrative of what was clicked.


This is the video from XPlaneOfficial:


As you can see in the video he goes to a screen that looks like the first image below.  I try to follow the steps exact, but I get a different screen.  The video goes to a screen where that has "<ROUTE MENU PERF INIT>" in the menu.  That is the screen that I can't get to.  The closest I can get it the screen that has "<ROUTE MENU VNAV>" in the menu.


The FMC in the Video:



The FMC in my screen:



All the tutorial and videos on the FMC starts out by telling the user to click on the INIT button to start the programming.  So, at present, I'm having the same problem with all the references to using the FMC that I'm having with this, which would most likely be resolved by being able to get to the screen that is in the Official Video.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions or comments!
