Disable shortcuts with a held key

Recommended Posts

I am loving chase plane, purchased yesterday.  One annoyance though, to type into the NGX FMC using the keyboard you can hold TAB and type.  I assume other PMDG's work the same way.  Now with chaseplane any shared shortcut reacts to the key press even when I have TAB pressed down.  I don't see a way to fix that.  It would be great to use my num pad for view shortcuts but not have the camera move all other when I'm holding TAB + typing in weights etc to the FMC.

 

Am I missing a choice?  If not hopefully this gets put in someones suggestion box for the future.  Not sure if it is hard to program an "if key X is held, ignore shortcuts"

Breene,

 

You don't have to use the 'tab key' to enter text into the FMS. Just click with your mouse in the text area, which will highlight with the green surround, then just type away.

 

Hope this helps .

Yes, thanks for offering the advice.   That method would still mess with any key bindings assigned to chase plane though.  At least while holding TAB to shortcut into the FMC 'scratchpad', it gives the other software a cue that the following key presses are meant to be ignored. Tab + B is a different input than 'b'....
