ButtKicker Profile Management
 
ButtKicker Profiles
 
Each ButtKicker Profile consists of a profile name, an assigned aircraft list, and the setting options for up to three ButtKicker devices (labelled BK No.1, BK No.2, and BK No.3).
 
The first profile in the list (profile 000) is always the Default Profile that is assigned to All Aircraft types. The default profile is always selected when no specific match to the currently selected aircraft type is found.
 
Named profiles 001 onwards are user specified and always assigned to at least one aircraft type. These profiles are never global, they can never be assigned to 'All Aircraft'.
 
All current profiles are displayed in the Management dialog's list using the following display format,
 
XXX  Profile_Name    NN  First_Aircraft_Type_in_Assigned_List
 
Where 'XXX' is the profile number (000 onwards) and 'NN' identifies the number of assigned aircraft. The Default Profile is always listed as '00  All Aircraft'.
 
Creating a New Profile
 
Use the Create button to create a new ButtKicker profile. After clicking the button you will be presented with a list of currently available aircraft types. Highlight one or more of the listed aircraft using the normal Windows mouse selection methods. Hold down the Ctrl key to add/remove individual aircraft types. Hold down the Shift key to select consecutive groups of aircraft types. Once all aircraft types have been highlighted click on the OK button to create your new profile.
 
Once created, the new profile will be initialised with all default settings and automatically named <first_aircraft_type> Profile. If needed, you can edit the profile's name using the Rename button.
 
Cloning an Existing Profile
 
Use the Clone button to clone a highlighted ButtKicker profile. After clicking the button you will be presented with a list of currently available aircraft types. Highlight one or more of the listed aircraft using the normal Windows mouse selection methods. Hold down the Ctrl key to add/remove individual aircraft types. Hold down the Shift key to select consecutive groups of aircraft types. Once all aircraft types have been highlighted click on the OK button to create your new cloned profile.
 
Once cloned, the new profile will be initialised with all source profile's settings and automatically named <first_aircraft_type> Profile. If needed, you can edit the profile's name using the Rename button.
 
Renaming a Profile
 
To rename a profile simply highlight the profile using the mouse and click on the Rename button. The Default Profile (000) cannot be renamed. After clicking the Rename button the ButtKicker Profile Name dialog will be displayed. Edit the profile's name in the text box and use the OK button to action the changes. Use the Cancel button to abort the operation.
 
Deleting a Profile
 
To delete a profile simply highlight the profile using the mouse and click on the Delete button. The Default Profile (000) cannot be deleted. After clicking the Delete button you will be prompted to confirm the operation before the profile is deleted.
 
Editing a Profile's Options
 
A profile's settings (options) can be altered using one of the Edit.. buttons. Use the Edit BK No.1, Edit BK No.2, or Edit BK No.3 buttons to alter the settings for configured ButtKicker Devices 1 to 3 respectively.
 
Modifying a Profile's Assigned Aircraft Types
 
The assigned aircraft types cannot be edited directly. If you want to modify the assigned aircraft types for a profile you must Clone the profile to assign the new aircraft list then Delete the original profile.
 
Moving a Profile Up and Down the List
 
When an aircraft type is selected in the simulator the program will search for a matching profile from profile numbers 001 onwards. The first profile with a matching aircraft type will be selected. If no match is found then the Default Profile (000) is selected.
 
Profiles within the displayed list can be moved up and down the list using the green Up and Down Arrow buttons. The Default Profile cannot be moved and always will be listed as profile 000.
