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, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

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.

    Strange click spot issues

    Evening everyone! I wanted to post a quick question to see if anyone else has had this struggle. Lately I've noticed the click spot on certain areas will display double arrow instead of the pointer finger in very exact places on scroll wheels and such. I actually built a new computer to upgrade my experience with MSFS and noticed on the new build the issue exists here as well. This can be annoying at times when I'm trying to click something on the FMC and I keep getting the arrows instead. I've verified that LENS CORRECTION is OFF!

    I've attached an image showing for reference the issue I'm having .Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I'm using the updated files for the click spots obvious provided by PMDG. I've attached two images with one showing the correct pointer finger and then just slightly moving the mouse and getting the arrows. Thanks all!

    **Edit** I just noticed another user with similar issues. https://forum.pmdg.com/forum/main-fo...-not-clickable

    I think you are only the second one reporting this problem and the first guy never reported their solution. How rude.

    As you can see in the thread you referenced, most of the suggestions from myself and others were related to Windows or MSFS mouse options. Please report back the solution when you find it.

      I'll let you know if I find anything but for now I'm stumped. I've tried everything I can including mouse drivers, etc.. Very strange issue for sure.

        I have seen that type of mouse nonsense before. It happens to me if I don't close a menu overlay "correctly "
        For example opening the weather/METAR if I dont exactly hit the X to close the overlay I will get the <-> or that 4 way cross thing.
        I have to go back and open and close the overlay again to fix the pointer.

          Yes, I'd second that experience.

            So I tried a few other planes this evening and noticed the behavior is the same. So I can definitely say this is not a PMDG problem necessarily, but I could see how folks would get to that opinion. Not sure if this is a windows issue or MSFS issue. Obviously it seems to be limited to users... so I'll continue investigating.

              I get the same thing and if the above comments are correct its probably caused by the GSX window auto closing

                Excellent Scott! That's exactly what it was. As soon as I opened and manually closed GSX again, the double arrow went away. Great job connecting the dots. Well, if anyone else sees this question asked, you'll have an answer. I just tested it and that's exactly what it was!

                  ...I never found a solution
                  When I find solutions, I always post it for others.

                  But nice to see that there is a reason for this.

                    Yep, looks like it was GSX all along haha.
