Apologies I'm being dense/blind, and missing something really obvious.

Hi Charly:


F/A-18 guide, Chapter 2.10 (Laser maverick), points 23 and 24: Your are saying to enable and use Laser Trig feature but:

- Releasing trigger button laser goes off.
- If you keep trigger pressed, then Weapon Release button does not work (maybe due it conflicts with trigger).

Someone says this is just a bug, others that Laser Trig feature should be used for buddy lasing only, some others says that ED has changed something and your procedure is now outdated.
In all the cases, in order to launch AGM-65E you need to activate LTD-R and then just press the weapon release button: this will fire laser and keep it on.
I've tried that way and it works.

Also, not 100% sure, but the same issue might occur on Paveway LGB usage too..

First and foremost; A huge thanks for providing such excellent and nice guides. I absolutely love using them for learning a new airframe.

May I ask something for future versions (not asking for a full redesign of whats been released)?

Background:
Due to VR and lack of physical surroundings I convert many of the pages over to the kneeboard. Since the kneeboard is a portrait-mode page I snip mostly the left part of the pages, at a roughly 4:3 ratio.
And it works great for most pages as I get the gist of what I need to remember in the procedures (for startup and like).

Question:
Would it be possible to try to keep the text on the left-most side of the page? This is quite useful for the content such as startup, which can be considered as 'checklists' but with better information (key bindings and other hints).
It works nicely for 80% of the pages as I don't need the images in later stages.

I know I can grab checklists from other places, but I do prefer the additional hints you have in the guides.
