Since the last update, I've found that when printing out the PLOG in A4 landscape format to use an an A5 kneeboard, the hieght of each row in the PLOG is significantly increased, and that pushes the frequencies onto a second page, which is always a problem in the air. It would be helpful to have a "fit to 1 page" button, as juggling pages in the air is an unnecessary distraction.

Meanwhile I'm using the 2-per page option in portrait format, but that renders the text very small and would be unreadable in any turbulence.

Thanks again for a brilliant piece of work, and especially for all your efforts in helping deal with the current restrictions.

Good evening,

Yes I too recently uploaded version 2.4 but have only now had time to plan a route!! and like you found the changes to the PLOG a retrograde step in that the Frequencies spill over onto a second page. Cockpit managment is crucial, particularly in turbulent or less than perfect weather (which we have been having recently) and having an extra page to contend with doesn't help. I prefered the previous lay-out which I found worked very well and was easy to use. All the necessary information was there with space for in-flight notes (squawks; ASR settings etc.) Incidentally I use the A4 landscape version every time.

Keep up the good work, overall, an excelent piece of kit.

Thank you

Smokey

It would be good if you could select the ones that you want to use in flight, and only these print out.

Have you tried the latest beta? Some work was done on helping the PLOG to fit better on all sorts of different paper sizes.

Hi Tim

The beta seems to have much better automated control of the row height, and will solve the problem I raised in this thread.

Thanks again.
