Evening everyone,

Having an issue with the CPT CDU. I have been able to manipulate the Config file to move everything where it should be EXCEPT for the scratchpad. It is too far to the left and cuts off two letters. There is a vertical adjustment but no horizontal that I can find. I feel like this is an elementary level issue but I can not find the answer. I have the demo version if that could be a possible cause, Ill be purchasing in the next couple days.

Any help would be appreciated

Line adjustments are best made from within the CDU.

Run the CDU and goto :
MENU > SIM OPTIONS > SIM > Next Page > LINE SETUP Page 2

You'll find a scratchpad X and Y adjustment.

Remember to press save.

(This menu will add a SCRATCHPAD_X= entry to the config.ini)

Line adjustments should usually only require minor changes to tweak the positions. If your missing a chunk of the CDU text and need to enter large alignment changes to see all of the text, you may want to try some different monitor refresh rates.

We have found recently on 'some' Win10 computers that 'some' CDU LCD screens require a different refresh rate to properly align them.

You can adjust the refresh rate under your Windows Display Settings > Display Adaptor Propeties > Monitor Tab.
You can try 70Hz, 72Hz, 75Hz.
One of those settings will usually work properly centre the CDU image.

Thank You Mark! I'll try these when I get home and hopefully get this marked as resolved.

***UPDATE*** Editing in CDU worked like a charm. Changing refresh didn't do much. Thanks again!!!
