I don't like taking my hands off the flight controls to click Next on the flight school instruction popups. How can I configure one of the buttons to do this?

I have tried setting a button for:

  • General action command
  • Next item in checklist
  • Contact ATC (action performed by "Enter" on the keyboard)
  • Sending a keyboard "Enter" (using programming tool for my control stick)

I'm running X-Plane 11 with a Saitek X52 Pro.

By default, the tutorial text can be acknowledged with the enter/return key. I'm not sure that this can be reprogrammed to work on a joystick button or other key.
