It would be nice if there was a way to keep MobiFlight Connector on top when having the window open and MSFS at the same time.

MF Connector always minimizes to the tool bar whenever a change is made in MF. If using it simultaneously with MSFS open, it gets tiresome to always go find it and open the window again. If there is an option to always keep it on top, I haven't found it yet.

By the way, GREAT PRODUCT!

Thanks,

I totally agree.

In the phase of testing out new (or even old) stuff it is a little annoying that every time you click ok MF disappears in the notification area.

Maybe a checkbox in the general settings "Minimize on Confirm" would be suitable here.

As provisional solution while building process i can recommend to use Sim in Window Mode and not Full Screen.
Downsize the Sim Window to half Screen so you can remain MF open on the other half.... Or simply work with 2 Screens.
Also here "Window Mode" is better in case your still on the Desktop all the time !
Good Luck !

I have 3 monitors. MSFS is windowed down to one monitor (windowed mode) while I use another monitor for MobiFlight. It still minimizes to the task bar.

Not sure if it matters, but I use all 3 monitors as one, (Nvidia Surround). I typically fly with surround mode, full screen. While tinkering with this, or painting aircraft, or building airports, I always put MSFS in windowed mode.

I wondering.
This not happen to me.

MF have the (in my eyes) bad feature to fully get unvisible if i minimize it.
Instead of be a task in the par it is shown just in the right part of Task bar (Hidden Apps)
Other programms like Firefox are simply down left.

BUT

For me it not minimize or gone by itself..... Only if i click the minimize Symbol by intent!

If your on Discord.... Maybe you can show me a shared screen what happend exactly.
Pretty sure we can solve this if it work for me but not for you !
Good Luck !
