Yes, that and you can more easily take parts in and out again. For example, I have the procedures in all the time but take in and out other stuff like flight plans etc. that are more (mission) specific.

Exclamation Version 1.6.8.1 Release

Version 1.6.8.1 is now available.

- Added custom kneeboard support for SA342Mistral
- Added option to use standard DCS kneeboard for MiG-21bis
- Custom kneeboard size can now be manually entered to exact values
- Added links to aircraft manuals in View menu
- Added Spitfire cockpit image

MiG-21bis update:

Kneeboard Builder will no longer be able to support custom kneeboard positioning and color schemes for the MiG-21 default kneeboard as it uses a non-standard file structure that is difficult and bulky to code around.
Instead I have added the option to use the default DCS kneeboard for the MiG-21 which will allow for customization just like with every other DCS aircraft.

Integrity Check Update:

To support custom position and color schemes, Kneeboard Builder modifies three DCS files that will cause integrity check failures. I have not found a workaround.

E.G. Briefing or Weapons Specs or Etc,,,,,, OR is Kneeboard Builder designed in such a way that any PDFs you import, you simply have to bring up the Kneeboard builder and keep turning pages until you find what you want?
What I was getting was that if you have all these pages loaded in kneeboard then you can set shortcuts to the beginning of each section and cycle select via the shortcuts instead of turning every page. This is in effect very similar to having tabs.

Hi There

Just downloaded 1.6.8.1 unzipped it into a folder on my desktop and have got the exe selected to run as a administrator and the program keeps crashing on the start up logo. I've tried running without administrator on and in a different windows compatibility mode what am I doing wrong?

Could you please look at your windows error logs right after you try running Kneeboard Builder and e-mail them to me.

To view the error logs in windows 7:

click on the start menu -> control panel -> system and security -> administrative tools -> event viewer-> expand 'windows logs' -> click on application

For windows 8 / 10:

right click on the start menu -> computer management -> expand 'event viewer' -> expand 'windows logs' -> click on application

To save your all events: right click on application -> save all events as -> enter a name and save as an Event File (.evtx)

To save a single event: right click on the event(s) you want to save -> save selected event -> enter a name and save as an Event File (.evtx)

E-mail the logs to me at s13solutions@gmail.com.

Thanks.

FYI Razbam got dynamic information to appear on their kneeboard and it can directly access the game (laser codes etc) Is there anything programatically that can be leveraged?

There are several modules that have that feature now. However their kneeboard update logic appears to be hardcoded into their module via C++ and isn't accessible to us.

Thanks for the tip on "Shortcuts" I will look into that, that is a feature I'm interested in.

I certainly appreciate this app, I don't know what some of you guys are doing on MP servers with IC check though? As AlaskanGrizzly just stated, he has not found a work around for this as of yet.
