Tab + S key for the FMC and SODE

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

Using the PMDG aircraft FMC, the Tab  key activates the data line.    However, the SODE program used in several add on scenery's also uses the TAB + S key to activate the system. I know I can use the menu from the top of P3D, but for shortcuts is there a way to change or delete the Tab data activation key in the FMC.  Each  time I use the SODE menu Tab key I enter an S on the the FMC and the pop ups get hidden and I am not sure sometimes what is activated on screen.  If not, I will just remember to use the menu at the top.  I have looked in the key assignments, no joy.  I cannot configure the SODE.

Thanks, Wayne L Pierce

Yes. Please have a look at the Intro Manual, which describes everything you need to use the aircraft, and all of the features many people don't even know about. For this case here, the USE TAB KEY option in the PMDG SETUP> menus.

Kyle, Thanks for the response. I have looked at  the intro Manual, once and quickly scanned through it.  I didn't think twice about the TAB key assignment. I thought it was pretty nifty.... until the SODE arrived.  I will now look again.

edit;

I was looking at the wrong pages for the key assignment, which is where I was looking. It was in the simulation pages and not the key commands. 

Thank You,

Wayne

I changed my SODE to activate on Ctrl+J.  It is easy to do, look for a SODE ini file of some sort and make the changes in that file.

So after reading your post Mr. Downscc, which I thank you, finding the correct path and then the correct file and then the instructions to read in their file.  I was simple.  Why is it so complicated to do something simple on this computer?  It make me feel really stupid that I didn't figure it out for myself first and not be on of those who does not  RTFM! and post here. 
Anyway I got all sorted out.  

Thanks again.

Wayne
