Hi all controllers,
Don’t you hate when you’re controlling and there is a specific command you want to use? You have to scroll, scroll and then find it. This is where command pinning comes in!
What's Command Pinning?
When controlling do you notice that when you frequently use a command it gets put aside on the left sidebar?
Are their commands that you would just love to have there automatically?
Command pinning allows you to pin certain ATC commands to the panel, instead of getting moved down the list. Or place a command on the side panel before you even have to use it! How it would make controlling easier.
How does this work?
1)Adding in a Command pinning section before opening an airport.
2)Once clicking Command Hotbar it leads you to another page, allowing you to pin/unpin certain atc commands.
3)Clicing the box next to the command will either pin or unpin the command to the pannel.
Once you’ve selected your setup then you can proceed to click save.
4) Then proceed to open your airport!
5) You’ve selected 3 commands to be pinned, they are “check tutorial/help”, “follow inst (simple)” and "follow inst (ghost).
Once you’ve opened the airport and you click on a pilot up comes the commands on the sidebar, with a green box around all 3 of them, meaning they’re pinned to the side.
Any command below the white line is not pinned and will move depending on how frequently you use it!

Will this be set in stone once i am controlling!
The answer is NO, holding the command for a certain amount of time (5seconds) will unpin the command. Additionally, if you forget to pin a command you can hold the command for 5 seconds.
I definitely think this would help a lot. More so with the expert server controllers, as sometimes with work loads, you just don’t have as much time to scroll to find a certain command.
However with training server controllers, there may be less commands to pin.
