Distance measuring.

Recommended Posts

Hi from Australia

I am operating FSX with a downloaded version of Flightsim Commander V8.4, FSUIPC V4 on Windows XP Home.

I am almost at the point of purchasing except for two things.

First I can't find the $US price and secondly when I try to measure distance I get the dotted line and a small black box. No figures. :? :?:

I did not see anything on this subject in the forum.

Can you help please. Other than that it appears to be a great programme!

Cheers

Geoff

I assume that you are trying to measure the distance and direction from point A to point B. There is a button on the toolbar. It is approximately in the middle. If you put your cursor on the button, it will pop up a tool tip that says "Measure Distance." Click this button. Move your mouse to point A and drag to point B. As you are dragging, a blue box will appear at Point A showing you the direction and distance to where ever your cursor is now located. When you release the mouse button the line will remain on the map.

The price is 34.95 euros. I leave it to you to convert that to Australian dollars. :D

Hi Geoff,

you can also measure the distance from your current aircraft position while click with the left mouse button on

the right field at the status line. The field is change from Coordinates to Outbound and/or Inbound.

Now move your mouse cursor to the position you want to measure. Now you can read the TRK and Dist in the status line.

Regards,

Volker

Thanks Tom (FS1TR?) and Volker

Yes, All of this is true...Except for the fact that the blue box you speak of is black and has no figures in it.

What file could be missing?

Thanks again

Geoff

Thanks Volker

Sorry appear to be stupid but I have a screenshot of the problem in my computer. The question now is how do I post it? I'm afraid I don't understand the explanation in the FAQs.

Can I send it in an email or something?

Sorry to bother you

Hi from Australia

I am using now Windows 7, FSUIP4 no network, downloaded versions FSC 83, 84, 85 and 86 and DBManagers to 86. This is an old problem of mine which has resurfaced. I hope you can help. When I click on the 9th button at the top to measure distance and direction I get a black bar with no wording within it. It used to be blue. The dotted line is there but only the black bar.

I also no longer get the rubber-band effect. I have re intsalled FSC 83, 84, 85 and 86 to no avail.

Can you help. I've enjoyed this prog for a long time now and it's frustrating.

Thanks

Geoff
