asterisk in AirEd entries

Recommended Posts

Greetings!Elementary question: What does the asterisk (*) in front of many AirEd entries mean? E.g. " *Engine Type = 1 "Perhaps an obsolete feature by now? But for the life of me I can't find the explanation in the Help page, nor on various fora. Wanna know, drives me crazy! :-)Thanks in advance for a clarification!Cheers,Martin

The above may be true, but if you right click most things, with or without the asterisk, you seem to get help. Look through the aired.ini file. I saw a small statement about the asterisk, but was in a hurry to go flying this morning.Ron Freimuth would be the one to give you the straight skinny. W. Sieffert

Sieffert Yes, "*" is supposed to indicate that Info is available. Ranging from useless to good forumulas. Sometimes I put several lines of Info on a line before several related parameters. You don't know what might be there until you look. While I put a "!" here and there to indicate recent changes. Often minor. I eventually remove the "!"'s; after I figure the changes have been in for some time. Ron
