Hey Ross,
Is there a reason you chose not to have bookmarks save which video maps are on?

I assumed that if I had a very detailed (but unrealistic for a radar position) map of the airport with taxiways and such, I would be able to save that map on as a bookmark with top down mode on. Then I could save bookmark 1 as my whole airspace with my regular video map on, and the 'cheater' ground map turned off.

Is there a reason you choose to not go this direction?

Can you not set a video map to only show in the top down mode? I know that you can bookmark whether the top down mode is turned on or not. Maybe if the video map only showed in top down mode and you set a bookmark to have top down mode on, you might be able to get the effect you're looking for? Just a though...

Yes, the reason is because bookmarks are not saved as part of your preference set, but video map selections are. (This is how the real system works.)

As Xalorplex mentioned, you can mark any video map as being "TDM Only" which is what you should do for the unrealistic airport detail map. That's what I do ... CTRL-1 shows the whole TRACON airspace with TDM off, and CTRL-2 shows a zoomed view of KBOS with TDM on. I can use this pair of bookmarks regardless of which preference set I have active. I have one preference set for each runway configuration, each with the appropriate video map turned on.
