Note: All icons and highlighting are hidden by default, appearing only when your pointer is within the display or over any given LSK. All other keys/rotaries correspond to their cockpit equivalent.
DirectType enables data input using your system's keyboard. The CDU screen will display red text while DirectType is active. To exit direct type, either click the on-screen button or press

The keyboard can be hidden at any time by double-clicking the main CDU screen area.
The CDU can be dragged via the main screen area.
Min/Med/Max Preset Selector
Each preset selector stores the size and position of the display. Moving or resizing the display will save the new size/location to the currently selected preset, which is highlighted yellow. The three position memories can be reset to their defaults by clicking the "Reset All" button on the main settings screen.
Dragging the resize handle will alter the size of the display while maintaing its aspect ratio. The new size will be saved to the currently selected preset immediately. By default the resize handle
will maintain a fixed aspect ratio while resizing. Holding Shift while resizing allows the horizontal and vertical sizes to be set independently (free aspect ratio).
