PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal,

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    No POP OUT Displays??

    There goes my home cockpit implementation! (Unless I have missed something)

            Could we please get some kind of explanation on why pop out screens are not working on the new build? Not just myself but hundreds of other people who use multi monitor setups would really appreciate someone from PMDG explaining this to us.

          Hi Chris. This is strange as with Aerosoft CRJ there is no problem and all displays can be popped out.
          For HomeCockpit Builders this is essantial to get.
          Please put this onto priority update within the next weeks.

            Because the CRJ is not programmed in C#

          May I second this request. I have a multi screen setup and Pop out screens have always enabled people to maximise their home sim setups.
          To not implement this into the new build 737 for MSFS is completely ridiculous. If it's on the to do list and is coming in a future update that's one thing, but to just do away with it because they think nobody uses it is infuriating to those that put their faith and money into PMDG products for years.

            It's not something on PMDG part, but on Asobo part, so they can't do anything about it now

              Dude you need to chill out. All your comments are hostile and there’s no need for it.

            Wow waited 2 years for this to be released, upgraded my pc in anticipation for this release $$$$, like 10000s of others like myself that have complete homecockpit setups, then to not implement or find a work around for this vital flight sim feature that we 10000s of homecockit flight simmers use 2D panels is just ridiculous, this is a MUST HAVE FEATURE including the ability to save state please listen PMDG. As is I will not be buying your 737 software as it has become for me and 1000s of other useless out of the box, most disappointing.

              I am also really disappointed!

                Dudes, it's still not on PMDG, so take a chill pill. You can be certain that this, just like the WX, EFB and other things are being worked on by both PMDG and Asobo.

                  yes i think the same.
                  lets hope for that.
                  also building a home cockpit .cpflight also not working with the pmdg.
                  patient is important now -)

                Yes, please PMDG add this! This is a huge feature that needs to be added.


                  Kindly asking please for PMDG to add this feature as well 🙏 was really counting on this for my home cockpit ❤️

                    Glad I waited, pop out is very important for me. It is awesome in P3d 737. I suspect this will be done in the future.

                        First, PMDG requires you to sign your posts with your first and last name, which you agreed to when you created an account here. You can set up a signature to avoid forgetting by following the instructions here:


                        And what do you mean PMDG doesn't care about it. Have a look at the following posts:


                        Followed by this announcement:


                        And finally, this one:


                        You'll see they've been working on it, so I don't know what gives you the idea that they don't care about it.

                            Posted 28 MAY - Quote:

                            Last week I mentioned that we hadn't yet had a chance to implement a change recommended to us by our friends over at Aerosoft to work
                            around some limitations we thought we hit that were preventing us from allowing our displays to be used as pop-ups for those who desired to do
                            so. Vin and Henning were able to implement the changes Hans and Mathijs at Aerosoft recommended to us, and we can now say with certitude
                            that this issue has been resolved and will come to you in the update next week:

                            Seriously guys, for anyone reading this thread, before you type something like 'a paramount feature that pmdg does not care about....' that simply makes you look foolish, at least try and read the forums and updates from PMDG.

                            While I am at it, as to some others and other threads on this forum, as clearly set out this version of the 737 was released as an early adopter release so many did not have to wait longer, and would be updated on a regular basis.
                            Many bug fixes and enhancements will be implemented over time, like the missing EFB at present for example.

                            While I can (as many have expressed) of course understand people's frustrations at things they thought would or should have been there from the start, there is no excuse for hostile comments in this or any threads on these forums.
                            Of course I am not simply advocating a 'be grateful for what you've got' position either like some have expressed which achieves nothing, and actually further aggravates users who are already frustrated.

                            Instead, lets all remember that no company or product improves without feedback from its paying customers, however there is a constructive way of giving that feedback. Hostile feedback and simply ranting (no matter how frustrated you might feel at the time), is counter productive. achieves nothing, and kills both a dialogue with the very people who can give you the things you want, and an unpleasant place for us all to interact.
                            Happily the vast majority take a breath and think about what they are about to type before touching their keyboards...

                              (My first ever post here...which is also a test to make sure I did the signature thing correctly)

                              Very well said Steve M.

                              I am much looking forward to this added feature, and (like probably the vast majority of the other forum members) are greatly appreciative of PMDG's ongoing open/honest communication.

                                    Thanks got it mate. I came straight from P3D where you just clicked on the displays.

                                  Very much disappointed too. Updated to 3.0.20. The "hand" appears, but the MFD's do not pop up as they did in FSX, 16 years ago.....
                                  Must be again Asobo's fault, as usual..... What a huge patience developers like PMDG and others must have with this guys.....

                                      Right "alt gr" converts the hand symbol into crosshairs. While you hold the key, left mouse click.

                                      Dear PMDG, please let the popout displays update in external view.

                                          It's the Alt Gr to the right of the space bar not the Alt to the left, it works fine on my German keyboard

                                        It works fine indeed with the ALT-GR + mouse click, but why having to use ALT-GR + mouse click instead of just clicking
                                        the hand mouse click as it was in FSX? Moreover, clicking again on the MFD dos not close the big pop-up... All in all,
                                        it was better in FSX 16 years ago.....

                                            My problem is that I unhook PFD and MFD pop up windows to a second screen and everything works perfectly until in the main screen I change to the exterior view of the plane... at that moment PFD and MFD stay on what they were marking at that moment and I no longer have altitude data, indicated speed, etc etc. Does the same happen to any other colleague???
