    Expanded F6 Zoom

    Hi,

    I added code that allows individual zooming of the PFD, ND
    etc... thus the element you select by right-clicking on it
    can be sized with the numeric keypad + and - keys.

    http://www.projectmagenta.com/latest.html

    I tried it in all sorts of configurations, and it was a bit
    more complicated than I expected (spent tons of time on
    it)... so if you find any problems, please let me know. I
    just wish I would have considered the possibility 5 years
    ago.

    One thing is certain, it will *not* be possible to rotate
    individual displays (i.e. PFD rotated but not ND) unless I
    make a complete re-write.

    Ciao

    Enrico

    Re: Expanded F6 Zoom

    Hi Enrico,

    Downloaded GC433p but I'm having problems with the F6 page. Despite having
    Capt PFD, Capt ND, Upper and Lower EICAS checked nothing except the standby

    instruments is displayed on the F6 page.

    If I deselect LWR EICAS the standby instruments diappear and come back when

    the box is checked again.

    Hope you can help.

    Cheers,
    Ray.

    Try clicking on "reset positions" in the menu or press
    Shift-Control-R.

    You probably had pretty large zoom values in the pfdset.txt

    Probably. When I pressed C+S+R only the PFD was visible. Moved everything
    left, resized and it's great

    Satisfied customer

    The word "satisfied" only applies to the 60 minutes after
    has been said. Sometimes less.

    It surely isn't a state of mind.
