I'm just starting to fly the Tupolev TU-114 by Sandim even though I've had it downloaded for a long time. The problem I see with the panel is regarding the location of one of the tool tip pop-ups that make it unreadable and therefore practically usless. When placing the cursor on the vertical speed dial in the pilot's panel, the portion that shows the rate of climb or descent is off the screen (See screen shot). Is there a way to relocate the flag so as to read the entire pop-up?I know nothing of programing a computer, so if this requires a severe programming method, I would be lost, unless there was a kind soul that could do it and provide the 'fix'. Another inconvienence, although not major maybe, is, since I fly in the VC mode using Tracker4, having to switch back to the 2D panel to access the navigation panel by means of a 'hot spot' on the pilot's panel. I have the engineer's pnel ant the radio stack programmed to a button on the throttle quad, so that isn't a problem. But there is no way to do the same for the nav panel, unless someone has figured that one out too.I hope that at least the first problem can be easily fixed since I love flying this plane. Thanks ahead of time for any suggestions.

First, we'd need to know if it's an XML gauge (cab) or a C gauge (gau). That determines what can and can't be done and how it has to be approached.If it's XML, I've been playing with tooltips in something else and can't seem to get the newline command to work as it does in Formatted Text. n is useless as it simply prints "n" in the tooltip.Any thoughts folks?Scott / Vorlin

Not sure about the guage type, but they are in a 'cab' file, so must be XML??. Here is the panel cfg for the pilot's panel: (also the install was automatic so couldn't tell; 2nd point: this occurs only in the "full panel view", not in the tool bar view where it is fully visible): gauge00=126!OTOPLEN_KVS, 0,0gauge01=126!altimeter, 416,408,93gauge02=114!Mahmeter, 184,689,88,88gauge03=114!Var_30, 525,527,90,90gauge04=114!Uprt_1_2, 842,373,85,85gauge05=114!Uprt_3_4, 934,373,85,85gauge06=126!radio_compass, 630,408,80,75gauge07=STT_OS_1_V1_1!PSP-48, 519,417,99gauge08=STT_OS_1_V1_1!PSP48_Pult, 746,701,136gauge09=114!114_AGD-1, 378,519,138,146gauge10=114!Ark_1_2, 509,629,119,126gauge11=114!UgolTang, 280,555,92,92gauge12=114!flaps, 640,607,76,76gauge13=114!flaps, 640,688,76,76gauge14=126!Omi, 512,368gauge15=126!RV114_2poz_Per, 183,555,86,109gauge16=126!Rsbn_dme, 636,494,77,79gauge17=SimIcons1024!Map Icon, 976,317,17,16gauge18=114!AP_glavnyi_off_L, 59,568gauge19=114!EUP_R Toggle, 86,574gauge20=114!TAXI_LIGHT, 20,509gauge21=114!LANDINING_LIGHT,39,508gauge22=114!Gear, 737,374,98,127gauge23=114!Gear_114, 742,586gauge24=114!Warning AUASP, 243,481,27gauge25=114!Warning Autopilot, 385,410gauge26=114!Warning Overspeed, 243,524gauge27=114!114_ruds, 0,677gauge28=114!Autopilot Turn, 13,596gauge29=114!Global Var Calculator, 1080,0,20gauge30=114!Panel_Lights, 306,701gauge31=114!Warning Altitude, 260,661gauge32=114!Dt_1_2, 844,464,84,84gauge33=114!Dt_3_4, 936,464,84,84gauge34=114!Warning AUASP, 273,481,27gauge35=114!AUASP, 1080,30gauge36=114!Autopilot VS Switch, 856,99gauge37=126!Autopilot VS Selector, 959,104gauge38=114!FLUGER_kryska, 829,586gauge39=114!Morozz, 1001,314gauge40=114!OPEN_LIGHT, 58,507gauge41=114!Sturman_Open, 731,714,22,45gauge42=126!2_pilot_Open, 989,288,23,23gauge43=114!BI_autotrottle, 908,731gauge44=114!Nav_GPS_per_KVS, 951,731gauge45=126!rus_clock, 931,186,90,83gauge46=STT_RV5m_UVID!AZS_UVID, 738,263,14,23gauge47=STT_RV5m_UVID!UVID_F, 659,271,85gauge48=126!Autopilot2Turn, 890,89gauge49=114!AP_glavnyi, 835,32gauge50=114!AP_glavnyi_off, 909,30gauge51=114!Warning Autopilot, 854,26gauge52=114!114Trimmer, 116,711gauge53=114!Autopilot_Belyi, 880,26gauge54=114!Autopilot VSLamp, 981,26gauge55=114!Autopilot Nav Switch, 857,68gauge56=114!Autopilot Nav Lamp, 927,26gauge57=114!Autopilot Hdg Switch, 857,84gauge58=114!Autopilot Hdg Lamp, 954,26gauge59=114!Autobrakes Switch, 782,535gauge60=114!Autobrakes Lamp, 742,520gauge61=114!Autobrakes Press, 813,519gauge62=114!turn_and_bank, 406,670,90,90gauge63=114!iconKryshka, 822,558,34,16gauge64=114!OpenDver, 153,679gauge65=114!skorost, 307,432,100,100gauge66=114!Autopilot Approach Switch, 993,731gauge67=126!Lamp_Glissada, 474,375gauge68=126!Poterya_Daln, 582,368gauge69=126!Poterya_Daln, 610,368gauge70=126!Lamp_Podlet, 547,368gauge71=126!Lamp_Kontrol, 663,372gauge72=xx126!Topl_Pr_Truba, 818,299xxgauge73=STT_RV5m_UVID!AZS_RV_5M_1, 182,523,14,23gauge74=126!126_DME_PULT, 782,65,45,72gauge75=126!NAV_LIGHT, 793,31gauge76=126!Bano, 761,31gauge77=126!Liana_Open, 757,101,23,23
