swiftgui_settings

This widget allows you to access all settings pages of swift. When selected for the first time in a new session of swiftGUI, it will take you to the Overview page. From there you can access all subpages either by clicking on the buttons on the Overview page or by selecting one of the tabs on top.


On the Servers page you can manage connection data for private FSD servers. This includes setting up swift for use as TowerView. More details on this page.


on GUI you can control basic appearance properties of swiftGUI, such as the type of the font used, its size, style and color. You can also set GUI's opacity (transparency) from about 30% to 100%.


The first part is reserved for possible future use. In the lower half you can review and change the download interval times for METAR data, VATSIM's network status file (Data file) and VATBOOK (Bookings) data. Avoid choosing very short download intervals to avoid overloading the servers.


This is the place where you manage your hotkeys.

  • you can add, edit and remove hotkeys
  • you can assign multiple keys or buttons to one single function
  • you have to define at least one joystick button or keyboard key as Push-To-Talk (PTT), otherwise you won't be able to talk to other users on the network


Add a new Hotkey

As an example, add a PTT hotkey combination:

  • select add
  • Action: select a function, Voice =⇒ Activate push-to-talk
  • Combination: click on [Select] and then press the button/key that you want to use as PTT
  • finish the process by selecting Ok
  • changes to your hotkey definitions will be saved permanently only when you shutdown swiftGUI, a prompt will ask you whether you want to save those changes or not


Edit an existing Hotkey

  • select an existing hotkey assignment from the list and click on edit
  • Action: you can either keep the same function for this hotkey assignment or change it to something else
  • Combination: to define a different hotkey assignment, click on [Select] and then press the button/key that you want to use from now on
  • finish the process by selecting Ok
  • changes to your hotkey definitions will be saved permanently only when you shutdown swiftGUI, a prompt will ask you whether you want to save those changes or not


Remove an existing Hotkey

  • select an existing hotkey assignment from the list and click on remove
  • changes to your hotkey definitions will be saved permanently only when you shutdown swiftGUI, a prompt will ask you whether you want to save those changes or not
  • if you removed a hotkey assignment by accident, instead of defining it again, you can also shutdown swiftGUI without saving the hotkey changes



By clicking on this, you can modify the audio notifications settings, as described on the main Audio page
