Speaking of 2d panel (yes, it's not there), is there a way to reposition the minipanel when you select the "W" key from cockpit view? I'd like to have it at position 1 not 7.

To move it to position 7, you need to edit the panel.cfg:

[Window01]
size_mm=36,168
background_color=0,0,0
position=7
//window_pos=0.000,0.75
<-- commented out (not acted on by FSX) - it can be deleted
type=special
visible=1
render_3d_window=0
zorder=99
ident=11101
gauge00=Captain_Sim.p721.tools!icons,0,0,36,168

Mark, thank you for your quick response, however, window01 is the small icon window that pops up with shift+2. That one is ok. I don't see where the standard FSX minipanel is called, yet it's there by selecting "W" from the " 2-d cockpit view" that doesn't have the 2-d panel. I just wanted to move the minipanel up to the top of the screen as not to interfere with the final phases of the flare.

Sorry. I was thinking of when you press F10 for the 2D cockpit view.

You have to edit the MiniPanel.cfg found in the FSX\Gauges folder. Opening it (I use Notepad), you will see the following:

; These are all the possible sections we look for
; depending on the aircraft type.  You dont have to
; have all these sections, we will use the most specific one found
;
; [MiniPanels]
; [MiniPanels SingleEngine]
; [MiniPanels MultiEngine]
; [MiniPanels NoVacuum]
;
; [MiniPanels Prop]
; [MiniPanels Prop SingleEngine]
; [MiniPanels Prop MultiEngine]
;
; [MiniPanels TurboProp]
; [MiniPanels TurboProp SingleEngine]
; [MiniPanels TurboProp MultiEngine]
;
; [MiniPanels Jet]
; [MiniPanels Helicopter]
;
[MiniPanels]
MiniPanel00=Mini Panel Gauges

[MiniPanels Jet]
MiniPanel01=Mini Panel Gauges for Single Engine Aircraft

[MiniPanels NoVacuum]
MiniPanel02=Mini Panel Gauges for Primitive Aircraft


[MiniPanel00]
position=7
size_mm=600,100
window_size=0.9,0.20
child_3d=1
background_color=0,0,0
ident=MINIPANEL

gauge00=MiniPanel!Airspeed,            0, 0, 100, 100
gauge01=MiniPanel!Turn Coordinator,      100, 0, 100, 100
gauge02=MiniPanel!Attitude,            200, 0, 100, 100
gauge03=MiniPanel!Heading Indicator,      300, 0, 100, 100
gauge04=MiniPanel!Altimeter,            400, 0, 100, 100
gauge05=MiniPanel!Vertical Speed,       500, 0, 100, 100

[MiniPanel01]
position=7
size_mm=500,100
window_size=0.75,0.20
child_3d=1
background_color=0,0,0
ident=MINIPANEL

gauge00=MiniPanel!Airspeed,            0, 0, 100, 100
gauge01=MiniPanel!Attitude,            100, 0, 100, 100
gauge02=MiniPanel!Heading Indicator,      200, 0, 100, 100
gauge03=MiniPanel!Altimeter,            300, 0, 100, 100
gauge04=MiniPanel!Vertical Speed,       400, 0, 100, 100

[MiniPanel02]
position=7
size_mm=400,100
window_size=0.6,0.20
child_3d=1
background_color=0,0,0
ident=MINIPANEL

gauge00=MiniPanel!Airspeed,            0, 0, 100, 100
gauge01=MiniPanel!Compass,            100, 0, 100, 100
gauge02=MiniPanel!Altimeter,            200, 0, 100, 100
gauge03=MiniPanel!Vertical Speed,       300, 0, 100, 100


All you need to do is change the entry position=7 under [MiniPanel01]. The changes will always make them appear in the new position, so backup the MiniPanel.cfg before you make any changes!

Edit.

These are the numbers that correspond to the location that the gauges will appear:

0 = upper-left corner
1 = upper-middle side
2 = upper-right corner
3 = middle-left side
4 = middle
5 = middle-right side
6 = lower-left corner
7 = lower-middle side
8 = lower-right corner

Mark, I fully see how you're a gold plated resource for this forum.
Your suggestion worked like a champ. Stupid me never thought to look in FSX/gauges. I generally found the minipanel in the ac panel folder. Thank you very much for taking the time to enlighten an old codger. Many happy trails (contrails) to you.

Terry

You're welcome.

Honestly, it didn't take much of my time to find that, as I knew it was there somewhere, and it could be changed. Grin
