Remove this panel

Postby k33bz » Thu Aug 22, 2013 9:32 pm

Now that I am using dual screens, it is really irritating to have this panel be there, and only disappear when I use a mouse to move around to a slightly different view. I am not sure which panel this is called, but its a default panel that shows up in every vehicle. This panel blocks the panel that is on most planes. How do I get rid of it

The one that covers the other panel, this is the panel I want to get rid of.

Does pressing Shift-p not remove it from view?

normally, that shouldn't even show up without you first activating it - see the built-in help dialog.

Hi k33bz,

I have had this issue too, that some cessna cockpit would overlay the 3d cockpit when the view was exactly straight forward. The solution to me was to disable the 2d cockpit altogether. This can be done in menu / view options. Just uncheck "show 2d panel".

Kind regards, Vincent

sorry, I figured out later on that I could use Shift P to get rid of it. But thank you very much, did not know I could keep it from coming up to begin with.

How do I show this thread as solved?

You might be interested to know that there are two 2-d panels available. In addition to the one pictured, there is another that consists of a single row of instruments on a transparent panel at the bottom of the screen. You toggle between the two when the 2-d panel is activated by hitting control-s. (for "Switch", I guess)

I use the small one quite a bit, and it's very easy to customize. Any instrument (almost) will work in it. All you have to do is change filenames for some existing instrument on the panel.

Also, its behavior can be changed to either disappear or not, when you change views. In preferences.
