Looks as though my IP is playing silly b**gers again, I answered earlier but
it appears to have disappeared into the ether that is Kingston Karoo space.

Anyway, try assigning Shift-E,2 to the button.  It's usually the keystroke
for cargo doors.

Hi Frank,
I've used mouse click areas in a couple of my multipage gauges but I've
no idea how to assign an action to a keystroke. Once addicted to
GoFlight equipment the need to use mouseclicks becomes a source of
irritation. Unreasonable but true.
