Lost Ability to Pan Around Cabin/Exterioir - SimConnect Applications

Since the update I can no longer pan around the inside of the cockpit or go outside the cabin and use my number keys to pan around the aircraft.

How do I fix this. I have checked that my keyboard was plugged in and NUM lock is set.

Thanks

Randy

Hi Randy,

Do you have any add-ons installed that may be interfering with these commands. Some add-ons may not be fully 4.2 compatible yet. Also double check to ensure the correct keyboard mappings for these commands are still assigned.

Randy, Im so glad i came across this post. I am having the EXACT SAME issue as you. I checked to see if it was the CS 757 causing it but its not because the default aircraft have the same issue.

Hello higgy_de,

Have you tried it with toggling numlock? Let us know if it still doesn't work for you after toggling numlock. It's working as expected on our end.

Regards,
Brady

Hello,

Do you have any panels open that may be taking the key entries?

Brady

Does anyone have a mapping schematic on how to reassign the number keys?

No, there are no panels open. I literally start p3d with the default flight and aircraft and still nothing.

After a fresh config are there still add-ons still installed? Does running the "Delete Generated Files" shortcut in the Prepar3D directory have any effect?

I deactivate with SIMstarter NG everything ..( except fsuipc) nothing helps.

does anyone know, how to deactivate fsuipc ?
Could this ( its only for 4.1...wait for new version ) the problem-maker ?

I can confirm I have this exact same problem. I have no applications installed that should affect camera views. If I roll back to the previous version of P3DV4 I get my ability to pan with the numpad again.
