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.

    737 Click Spots Not Working

    Hi guys.

    My click spots for the pop up windows aren't working at all. I can enlarge the ND and EICAS displays along with the FMC but not the PFD and none of the other click spots for radio, TO/GA etc.

    I just purchased P3D.V4 and the PMDG 737 (I've flown the PMDG 747 FSX-SE for a while with no problems at all) but thought I'd give this P3D.V4 a go. Purchased the PMDG 737NGX but from the outset (which was just this week) the click spots have not worked. I noted some really old posts on this topic so suspect that no one else has this problem. I googled "click spots not working" thinking that if PMDG had a solution in their knowledge base my Google search would have found it.


    No luck so now I'm reaching out. If anyone knows where to start my problem solving it would be muchly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds like it could be a couple of things. First, the Capt PFD popup is disabled by default because it caused crashes for some users. You can turn it on in the options, see also the Introduction manual.

    Click spots on the center console not working is always a problem with your viewpoint being in the headrest. It could be a problem with an addon camera you might be using.

      Re the PFD Dan, appreciate the notification. I have read the IM and some sections several times. I accept I must have missed the mention of the "disabled by default" discussion. "My Bad" … thanks mate. As for add on cameras … I'm not using anything. Only add on I have is Active Sky for P3D.V4. I'll persevere and see where I end up. Thanks mate

        I found that can happen when you move the head of the pilot back too far. Not the zoom buttons + and - but Ctrl+ Enter and Ctrl + Backspace. Often if you just move the head a little forward Ctrl + backspace the click spots start working. It seems to be a bug in the FSX software.

          Bryan you right about that in FSX but I'm unable to replicate it in the P3D.
          Also I would advise you to add signature. It's easier when you don't have to remember did you add it or not.

            Thanks guys. Followed the recommendation above? and sent my xml.dll file to PMDG. Paul at PMDG fixed it in no time and now it's all up and running. Thanks all and thank you Paul (PMDG) for getting me sorted so quickly. Definitely recommend that be your Plan A if you have this problem. I shagged with the notepad++ and a number of options. This was by far the quickest and easiest and I must say that support like that certainly adds to my 'loyalty' to the brand.
            Kindest Regards
