  • Put the in either the Target Plane's panel folder or FSX/Gauges for universal use.
  • Open the Target Plane's panel.cfg in notepad.
  • Add the WindowXX=Info line to the target panel.cfg [Window Titles]section and change the XX to the next number.
  • Add the description to the bottom of the list of [WindowXX], just before [Vcockpit01](if it exists).
  • Change the XXs in [WindowXX] and zorder=XX to the same as the new WindowXX=Info.

[WindowXX] actually can be placed anywhere below the [Window Titles] section and be recognized, but, having things in their proper order makes it much easier to find them.
