After speaking with Jon Boe I realized that the update that will allow a momentary switch to 'latch', in other words, act as 'ON' or 'OFF' when pressed and released, not just when pressed, hasnt been released yet. It can be read about up higher in this thread where PC quotes a reply from Brent of Tekworkx.

Okay, so Key commands are available to operate some functions I find out. I had never considered using that before! Duh!

However, the only function that I can get to work correctly using the Key command function is the Auto pilot master and if I can get anything else to toggle (such as HDG, IAS) , somehow it's also turning my sound on and off. Obviously there's a conflict here and I began by lookin in FSUIPC and also in FS9' Assignments page. After deleting the key command, the issue of certain functions not working or turning the sound off persists.

Mind you, this is not a SYS problem as I can see, but some how when using the keyboard such as CTR+A, it works as turning on APP but when putting that combination in thru the Update/Key Command, it doesnt work with the switch.

Thanks for contending with my newness to interfacing. Just trying to get a grip on it all and understanding why this works so well for the Z command (autopilot master) but none of the others, such as CTRL+H, for HDG, which for some reason, is turning on Anit Ice!?
