Add menu auto-coord toggle fixes jet ap problems

Postby clrCoda » Sat Nov 23, 2013 9:41 am

I would like to suggest adding the feature of the auto-coordination toggle to the file
data\gui\menubar.xml

under the autopilot drop down below the tags
<name>autopilot</name>

at the bottom of the autopilot drop down after pop waypoint using this code segment
Code: Select all
<item>
   <label>Auto-Coordination</label>
   <name>auto-coordination-Toggle</name>
   <binding>
      <command>property-toggle</command>
      <property>/controls/flight/auto-coordination</property>
   </binding>
</item>


as a way to solve those situations when a pilot that typically sets auto-coordination ON to be able to toggle the feature when they want to so that they can turn it OFF before turning on the autopilots on jets that have a trouble dealing with auto-coordination being on with the autopilot on, with out having to go into the property browser to do this task.

That seems like a good idea to me - I usually use the property browser, but a menu entry would be nice. Also if you are in a Helicopter and fogot to trun auto-coordination off before the flight...

Turns out the A./P menu is not the best place for this hack as the A/P menu is not available in all planes.
I since moved this to help menu.
