Click Spots for pop-up windows

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was having a hard time to find proper search criteria for this so I thought I would ask. For the longest time I am having issues with click spot location in pop up windows in P3D. Every time I fly it can be different. I use the GSX and AS-P3Dv4 on every flight. Here is what happens. I load up P3D and start preparing. In the course of preparing of course I open up the GSX window. This opens the semi transparent dialog box. Now when I hover over a certain item, the actual selection I make is one or two items above/below where my mouse currently is. And since the color change when highlighting an item is almost imperceptible I end up choosing wrong things. It doesn't matter if it's the GSX or ActiveSky box. I immediately know I have been dealt the bad hand when I try to expand the box and notice that the edge of the box (where I need to click and drag to expand) is located a certain distance up from the bottom of the box. The only way to remedy this except for squinting for 10 seconds to make sure the correct choice is highlighted is to revert to undocked window mode. Then the cursor does exactly what it should. Is this common? Any ideas? I am running 4K on a 52" Samsung smart TV.

If you are referring to GSX operation window, you don't need to use mouse, you can choose on your keyboard what you need. Now, based on what you said, not sure what can go wrong with AS? You can open AS separate without SIM running, does it happen than...?

I could but I use the number for chaseplane views. So every time I choose something it changes views. What I mean is the GSX or AS dialog window. It uses the same P3D window (the transparent grey window). That windows does not map my cursor position correctly.

I have same thing with EZDock, but I am not using NumPad....never had and issue. Even for GSX parking adjustments (editing), I am not using NumPad (according to the manual I should, but I managed somehow without it), I use arrows and Function keys, that's how I mapped. And it works. Not sure if it is another way. But what you have is strange that you can't use mouse....
