So I’ve tried to set views in memorise 3D cockpit location - no joy. And Control and hitting the number on the numpad also doesn’t work. I’m using a Satechi numpad... not sure it makes a difference. The numbers on the Mac keyboard also can’t set views.

I was able to set up a quick look while using a Mac keyboard with built in num pad. It's possible it's the external numpad that doesn't work. Is it recognized elsewhere in the sim, and in the OS?

Hi there,

Ive just bought a Mac keyboard with numpad and still not working! Reinstall xplane maybe?

External numpad works fine everywhere but xplane i believe.

Ok Ive done a new install and that seemed to work. I can only set the views on the Mac keyboard (external) and then the Satechi will then follow the commands. Sometimes if I put in a command I have to reset the assigned keys and it seems to retain the ones I have put it and refreshes my ability to assign more. All a bit confusing really!
