Folks,



I am puzzled by the Aircft and Flight toolbar buttons. According to the

Help, they should bring up a list of either registrations or flight

numbers, and that part works. However, the Help goes on to say that if I

have Mode-S enabled (and this PC is working with The Beast), I can

double-click one of the entries and get a report, but for me, double

clicking does nothing.



Have I misunderstood the function, or am I not recording something which

that function relies on?



Thanks,

David

Those two are really legacy items from the days when ACARS was all that PP did. The "report" is a file of the ACARS messages for the callsign or flight number that you select.

Thanks, Bev. So as Mode-S messages will greatly outnumber ACARS messages,

and I'm not monitoring long distance flights over the ocean, I might as

well hide those buttons with Shift, left-click? Well, that's what I've

done.



Cheers,

David
