How it works :
There are two applications, one for saving the position/size and another one to recall it. It saves one panels setup per aircraft.
Download “Panel Position” here :
– Unzip it in a folder
– Open FSX in windowed mode
– Open the panels you need, undocked them, and place/re-size them the way you want.
– Launch “Panel Store.exe” and wait a few (2 to 5 sec)
Move, resize the panels or load/create a flight.
– Open the panels you need (undocked)
– Launch “Panel Restore.exe”
The size and the positions of your panels will be recalled.
More details :
When you execute “Panel Store.exe”, it scans all the open windows, keep only the panels, and store their name, size and position in a .ini file. The .ini file name should be the aircraft name but I noticed it could be different with some addons.
When you execute “Panel Restore.exe”, it search the aircraft name, scan for the .ini file that match and move/re-size the panels if they are opened and undocked (otherwise the software can’t do anything).
When you launch “Panel Store.exe”, and if a corresponding .ini file is already created, it will delete it and create a new one.
Create a shortcut for the two .exe, and assign a free keyboard shortcut.
For example : Ctrl+Alt+F11 to save and Ctrl+Alt+F12 to restore.
