(FSX 1.503)

When MCP altitude is decreased below cruise, it is not copied into the scratchpad for <=4000ft altitude changes.

Manual:
(Part II, pg. 344)
CRUISE DESCENT
Resetting the MCP to an altitude below the current cruise altitude causes the
new altitude to be copied to the scratchpad if the altitude change is 4000 feet
or less. The new cruise altitude can be entered on the cruise page.

Observation:
When performing a cruise climb, the higher MCP altitude is copied into the scratchpad correctly, but on cruise descent, the lower MCP altitude is NOT copied at all.

Screenshot shows planning of a cruise descent from FL360 to FL340 (see MCP). The altitude has not copied to the scratchpad to enter into the CRZ ALT field.
