Sorry if this question is obvious to others but here goes.
The message board that is at the top of the screen when using a scrolly sim. The box is rather small for the amount of information that comes in sometime so I have enlarged it and dragged/moved it down the screen so it is more visible. Only trouble is when I then click onto the main screen again the message board disappears. Is there anyway of keeping the message board on the screen?

Yes there is an option to 'keep on top' or similar wording if you left ot right click on the box- forget which.

One of the great problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas.

This will depend on the Sim that's in use, but I like to keep the "Message","File" and "Overview" windows open.

To do this normally requires re-sizing the main window in terms of it's hight if the overview is a long one (Euston is OK and requires only 1/3 of the top).

The "Overview" then allows me to click anywhere on it to jump the main view to that location while still having the messages displayed and also means I can pop-up the F2 train list when ever and keep it there.

Dave, Peter and others,
I tried the suggestions last night and it works just as you said it would. Thanks once again.
