I am running x-plane 11 using an iMac computer and an iMac keyboard without the number pad.  I cannot get the simulator to remember the changes I have made to selected views while trying to set up the QuickLook function.  This keyboard does not have a "mum lock" feature and it will not save the changes I have made to any views.  I hold the control key and press the corresponding #key to save changes but it doesn't save the changes.  Does anyone else using a Shortened iMac Keyboard have a solution to this problem.

Hi, You can change the assigned keys to these functions in settings, keyboard, view.

Thanks for the help, however, I did a search on my Mac and I can't find anything that will allow me to change the keyboard setting.  Not that I could figure out anyway.  Solved the problem though.  Bought a new Apple keyboard with the numbers pad.  QL seems to work, I've only tried one view so far but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they all work as advertised.

Thanks again,

I can now get it to work on the new keyboard, but I can't get it to work with the Joystick buttons, it keeps reverting back to the preset views when I use the Joystick, and when I use the number pad it goes back to my modified views.  What the heck am I doing wrong?????  I thought it would go back to the views I set on the joystick??

Can you be more precise? Screenshots of your settings and/or videos of what you do and what you get in x-plane are almost necessary, if you want Laminar Research to be able to help you.

It has to describe very precisely what you do, where, when, how.

Not going to worry about it for now, just going to take the apple keyboard back and buy a standard keyboard with a number pad.

What it is doing is:  It will not go to saved (altered) view with the joystick buttons.  It will go back to the view I have saved when I use the #pad but not when I use the joystick.

Finally figured it out.  You have yo set the view the way you want it then assign it to a key on the number pad.  Once that was done I did a search  on the keyboard settings and discovered what the assignment was associated with.  Once I knew what it was assigned to I then went to Joystick configure and was able to associate everything.  Works fine now.
