Assign Chase Plane to a key

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I can assign the launch of the "floating" menu (see 1st screenshot below) to a key.

Is it possible to assign the direct launch of the Chase Plane window to a key (see 2nd screenshot below), to "avoid" the "floating" menu?

Right Keven. I could assign a key to bring up what is in the 1st screenshot. In this case I have to make one click on "Open Chase Plane".

I woud like to assign a key to bring up directly what is in the 2nd screenshot.

Found.

I assigned the "grave" key (not used by P3D or other) to "Toogle UI".

Then when I minimize Chase Plane and hit the grave key, the UI will not show on top in P3Dv4.

It will only work when the simulator is in focus. Have you tried other controls?

"other controls": you mean assign another key or a joystick button?

I tried to assign a joystick button but the app refuses to take that into account.

I tried to assign another keyboard key but the result is the same: when the simulator is not in focus it does not work.

I'll just forget this and use the Toggle View Selector and make a click to access the UI.

Toggle View Selector is the same, it will not work if the sim is not focused.

For the assignment, you tried to assign a button in the button column or in the key column?

I assigned Toggle UI to a joystick button in the button column. The program accepted it. However, by pressing the joystick button, the UI does not display, even if the simulator has focus.

And the same if I assign Toggle UI to a key, it does not work even if the simulator has focus.

The Toggle View Selector assigned to the grave key works if the simulator has focus.

So in the end, to display the UI, I will:

1) Press the grave key to display the Toggle View Selector

2) Click on Open Chase Plane

It's one more click but not the end of the world!
