how to zoom view of map in cockpit
« on: March 14, 2019, 03:30:45 AM »

Hello! When I open the map in cockpit it is set to quite a close up view and I cannot seem to find a way to zoom out. There must be a way. Can anyone enlighten me?  Cheers

Hello deskpilot,

haha, you fly with notebook or laptop?

Take an external mouse and zoom in / out with mouse wheel.  ;)

Best regards and good luck,

Gerhard  :)

The scrolling wheel on my mouse works with my PC, too. Just place the cursor on the map, then roll the wheel one way or the other.  8)

Thanks guys! I had forgotten that I had mapped the mouse wheel to another function so it wouldn't zoom the map!

 :-[ Sorry. I forgot that you can also change the map scale by right-clicking the mouse. I prefer the wheel, though.
