Default Possible suggestion

With the dual kneeboards I run into an issue with which is in focus. I'm right handed and have my tablet on my right leg. When I go to the F10 map to copy coords, they're located in the far upper left of the screen. What results is my writing getting spread over both kneeboards.

A couple possible solutions I've thought of.
1) a key based focus toggle
2) a switching delay to change focus
3) required looking directly at the kneeboard to change focus and then it holds that until the other board is directly looked at.

Thoughts?

I agree with 1 and 3. Everything can be done by a switching mode selection with several options like:
Automatic closer (this is the current behavior)
Automatic focused (your option 3)
Manual (function on button/keyboard)

I'm actively working on kneeboard positioning with VR controller which will make configuration of position and angles obsolete if you have a controller. This feature is almost finished and I could integrate this change easily in that release.
