Make Minipanel Smaller in FS2004

Recommended Posts

I have no experience designing panels, but I was wondering if there was a way I could adjust the panel.cfg file to make the mini panel of the default 777 smaller. I've already repositioned it where I want it, but it still takes up almost 1/2 my screen. I'd like to resize some other a/c mini-panels as well, either make them a bit smaller or larger, but have no idea how to go about doing this. Any resizing I've done only cuts off parts of the gauges, and doesn't actually make them smaller.Thanks in advance to the group for any help, and definately thanks for your patience.Chuck
