    Icon17 Aircraft Config File Question

    Is there a way to change the color of the font or highlight an entry in the Aircraft Config File ? Example: If you have an aircraft with a large number of repaints can you "highlight" the last aircraft entry with a different color font or just highlighting like you would say with a "yellow highlighter" to make it easier to find when scrolling through the entries to add another aircraft entry. I insert a break-line under the last aircraft entry
    (break-line= //################## "about 3 or 4 lines long" ), but with my old eyes it is still hard to see when scrolling through nothing but black and white fine print.

    Don't think so T. The .cfg files are just plain text. You could open it in Word and highlight stuff, but that would make the file unreadable by the sim. What I do for my degraded eyeballs is crank up the font size on Notepad...

    Use a different text editor. Notepad2, for example, has scaleable fonts and basic highlighting.

    I normally just leave a large gap between the last aircraft entry and the rest of the cfg entries.

    You could always do this:

    "//*****END AIRCRAFT REPAINTS*****"
