Posted - 07/12/2011 : 19:51:54 Hi,
Could we PG/HG pilots have a short-click top right custom key, please? :-)
Currently, for us, the top right custom key is hard-coded (not customizable) such that a long-click here shows the current coordinates (or initiates a task restart when starting a task with start gates). However, a short-click here does nothing (except zoom in) – and can’t be programmed to do anything. In glider mode, however, this “key” (short-click only) can be customized.
I prefer short clicks where ever possible, as it’s harder to do a long click in flight (especially in turbulence) and requires more hands-off-the-bar/brakes time. So an extra short-click custom key would be nice.
Also, I fly more with LK in Condor (simulator) than in real life. My Condor flying is always in “glider” mode, and my real-life flying is (almost) always in PG/HG mode. In order for my simulator time to be as applicable to real life as possible, I’d like LK to be as alike for glider and PG/HG pilots as possible, saving any differences for things that are really significant. I don’t see enough of a glider-PG/HG difference here to warrant having a short-click top right custom key available to glider pilots but not to PG/HG pilots.
In summary, I recommend enabling the short-click top right custom key for PG/HG users, while at the same time preserving the current long-click functionality of this key for PG/HG users.
What do you think?

Posted - 16/02/2012 : 21:47:46 I was just looking this over and noticed that the online help for this (top right) custom key still says that it's unavailable for PG/HG pilots. I suppose this help text needs revising to reflect this change. :-)

Posted - 08/12/2011 : 23:50:33 Yes it is possible and I have done it.
I had some doubts because the long click here is used also during time gates for task reset. But really there is no problem to let it be configurable with a customkey. Simply because: by default it is Disabled, which is exactly as it works now. The difference is that it will be configurable like for gliders.
I think it is a good idea, and I have made it permanent already.
