  1. I am having a major problem using the hot key to get the LINDA screen to 'pop up' when running MSFS. I did see somewhere that this could be problematic but I have tried various key combinations and some work for a while (lots of repeats) but when I re-launch the FS the hotkey doesn't work. I can see that in the cfg file for example the code is 32843 when I try to use Alt+K and this changes to 49227 when I try to use Ctl+Alt+K. Any suggestions will be appreciated. (Incidentally the Alt+F for FSUIPC7 works flawlessly.)
  2. Worked perfectly. Thanks again. Roger
  3. Wow Andrew, that was quick. Yes I have been using 3 screens but just now back to one, so it's probably that. I'll try it. Thanks.
  4. Hi Berlopez, I felt a bit stupid when I found out what the problem/answer was but felt I ought to put the solution on here. Why the slider moved is a mystery - I never use FSX controls so I very seldom go in there. Gremlins?
  5. Hope you can help. LINDA was working fine as I was getting to know it. Maybe I've caused this, but when I want to view the console I see it shows as open on the task bar but when I hover down there with the mouse I see a blank page and I cannot anyway get it to appear maximised next to the main LINDA page as normal. It did work before. I am using FSX Steam and the latest LINDA version for that with FSUIPC4. It's probably something basic but I can't see how to sort it out, so any further info needed, please ask. Thanks.
  6. Found it! For anyone else it is a slider in Settings Display - Aircraft which sets the transparency of the pop out panel. For some reason it had crept across to 100%. Panic over.
  7. Hope someone can help. This is happening with all aircraft in FSX Steam. If I use Shift+1,2 etc I get a flash where the pop up should be and nothing else. Trying again I get nothing at all. If I try the alternative of 'views - instrument panel' nothing comes up again. All I have done recently is install LINDA. Any ideas, please.
  8. Sorry if this is a bit long; I hope you have the patience to read it. I’m about to put my foot in the waters of Linda (if that’s mixing of metaphors, well…). I’ve been footling around with FS (FSX for good reasons), Air Manager and FSUIPC4 for a year or so and eventually choosing a main-to-be-used aircraft (Carenado Saab 340B) and want to add a couple of panels which I’m in the process of making using great advice from Mark Hurst’s super little book. LINDA’s Grandad (Brian) tells us to plan ahead and guess what, I find I’m in a Catch 22 situation. I find myself trying to plan what the panels (and therefore LINDA) will do, but increasingly find I suspect I may be wasting my time. I read quite a bit about add-on aircraft being unsuited to the kind of customisation I envisage, even one post on here suggesting I keep clear of all Carenado aircraft. I don’t want to jump the gun and install LINDA too soon even though the answer to my quandary seems to lie in there (Tracing among other things?) because I haven’t finished the panels. I don’t want to finish the panels only to find they are asking too much of the software. Any advice, suggestions or inspirational stories will be welcome. Roger
  9. Hi Jean-Luc and Tony, I was/am going to experiment with alternative parameters (just in case!) but got bogged down with something else. We did try for an hour and a half (thanks Tony), but didn't manage it. Roger
  10. Guys, First of all thanks for your good wishes which have worked. I'm back to my normal bewildered self. I'll have a session with all this and hope to 'get there' soon. I will report back. Thanks for your time and the good natured exchange between you. Rog
  11. Hi guys, I am watching this with interest. Somewhat distracted by having just caught Covid. I'll catch up shortly. Roger
  12. Thanks Jean-Luc. I'll go back and see what they say in reply to your comment. I'll be in touch. Roger
  13. Hi Jean-Luc I have been in touch with support at Air Manager and even sent them a video clip of the problem I raised with you. Does their reply - suggesting changes to the Reality XP kit - make it likely that changes would make what I am trying to do possible? From Sling - 'I’ve watched the video and indeed you have the issue I was expecting. The only way to truly make this work with FSX is for RXP to update their product to use LVAR’s for the Nav/com2 controls. All they currently offer is keyboard mappings. If they are not interested in doing this you are stuck. The GTN overlay could be modified to solely control the frequency selection but then would not function as as an FMS knob when on another page that needs control via the FMS knob. Equally you may be able to fix it to the FMS Knob but the frequency control will not be possible. A set of RXP implemented LVAR’s would just be control of the basic knob just like GTN 1 works so it would know where to direct the knob change to based on the currently selected page/field.' Thanks, Roger
  14. Wow! I'll spend time trying to absorb all that. As always I do appreciate your support. Great product. I'll probably run this past the AM guys just to see what reaction I get. All the best, Roger
  15. Just to follow up - I hope, looking at my post you will not take offence at my use of the word lyrical. The way you took me through it all was almost poetic. Just to underline my confusion - at any moment in time units 1 and 2 manage to hold different frequencies from each other so they do appear to have independence from the 'mother' unit' in the 3d cockpit. That I find amazing so it's a bit disappointing to find this stumbling block with the knobster.
