default key commands keep reappearing after deleting

Postby gvmd » Wed Apr 25, 2018 11:05 am

while assigning joystick keys i delete the default key assignments. when i restart P3d V4 the default key assignments reappear.

I did not have this issue in P3d V3. can anybody point me in the right direction?

After I delete the unwanted assignments, I will save the settings using the EXPORT button. When I start a new session the prior settings always persist; however, if not then it is easy to retrieve those using the IMPORT button and selecting the set that I exported.

This also works with assignment variants, for example one set may use the slider for speed brakes and another for prop pitch. Very useful feature.

I went to the file where the control settings are stored, and marked them "read only", problem solved. You just have to remember to uncheck that box, if you want to change one of the control settings. C:\Users\YOUR ID\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\Controls..
