747-8 Captain's PFD Zoom Display

Recommended Posts

Just updated to 3.00.9195 and noticed the 747-8 Captain's PFD Zoom Display no longer works.  Clicking on the PFD doesn't display the zoomed window. The Co-pilot's works just fine.  

I'm running P3D 4.4.  Wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing this before I submit a support ticket.

Thanks,

Charlie Simons

It's been there for nearly two years, actually:

P3D Captain PFD pop-up CTD protection has been added to all three product lines. Since we have been unsuccessful in our efforts to convince Lockheed Martin to evaluate this CTD seriously, we have locked out the ability to use the CA's PFD as a pop-up display, but we included an option in the PMDG Options menu within the FMS that allows the user to Opt-In to having this popup work. (NOTE: This particular CTD, for those who do not know, affects a small percentage of users who use the CA PFD as a popup, but the CTD doesn't happen until you have been flying somewhere between 3-8 hours of actual elapsed time. This CTD began to appear in P3D v3.1 after Lockheed Martin pushed that update- and no root cause has been found after literally thousands of hours of tests internally at PMDG- so we took this step in order to minimize the number of customers affected by it without realizing the cause...)

Should you want to re-enable:

CDU MENU Key:

PMDG SETUP > OPTIONS > SIMULATION > Page 3/7 > DISABLE CAPT PFD POP-UP
