@Hollywood_315 This interactive kneeboard (which is very good) has hijacked the kneeboard so that I cannot have my own kneeboard sheets anymore. I have several cribsheets that I refer to all the time, such as start up procedures, etc.

 

1) Is there a way to stop the kneeboard extension fully. To allow me to go back to seeing my own kneeboard pages.

2) Is there a way to integrate the extension with my own kneeboard pages.

Odd, it won't let me use the move through the extension pages using the standard keys

Not for me. I only go back and forth through the extensions pages.

 

Ahh haaaaa, do not bind the same buttons you use to go next/previous page (for your normal kneeboard) to the Advanced option: keyboard/joystick control binds for next/previous tab. Kneeboard pages, and Kneeboard extension tabs are two different things.

 

I take it back. This is awesome.

I figured it out. Page 46 tells you how to bind a key/button to the next/previous tabs on the extension kneeboard. I mistakenly bound these functions to my normal kneeboard next/previous page buttons, and they conflicted. I can now cycle properly.

Would be nice if we only needed one set of „page back/page fwd“ keybinds... i did not yet test the extension, and I am thinking on which keys to use :music_whistling:

You do - switching between the Vaicom kneeboard pages is easy with voice. There are so many pages already to scroll through with the keys that I wouldn't want another set added

Have not tried it yet but I will next week

 

A question, if you use a button to scroll to the next tab, does it circle back to the first if you press next tab when you are at the last? Or do you need another button for previous tab? If you dont want to use voice.

 

Im asking because Im thinking of how I can squeeze this in on my already quite full VR buttonbox.

Just a thank you to Hollywood for incorporation of the Theater Exposed variable

 

Helped me build my profile to page through the kneeboard using Voice Attack.

 

It's far from perfect as it need to know the number of pages, but it works pretty well for me

Got all the APIs working except kneeboard.opac.up & kneeboard.opac.dn

 

When I execute these commands I get the Comms menu popping up.

 

It's not a biggie as I can go direct to a tab or use the kneeboard.tab.prv kneeboard.tab.nxt

 

So far so good, loving it

I have to say @Hollywood_315 this kneeboard is a game changer literally. Bravo. This is what I have been looking for, for a long time. This is essential for VR players. I have struggled continuously with not being able to record or remember information, and it has been very frustrating. I have now played a couple of missions with the new kneeboard and it makes life so much easier. Well done, and thank you.

+1 - while I had coded my own commands for an in flight scratchpad this version has way more functionality and is easier to use. Great job @Hollywood_315
