Ok awesome thanks guys, I’ll try to be more specific with the sim brief and my apologies for the typo.
In the simbrief tutorial I watched from MarcelloM, once he creates his flight plan, and analyzes it, he copies the VOR/WP/Fixes from the Simbrief flight planning section, then pastes it in the search bar in IF. It seems when he does this it automatically plots the entire route which seems super convenient, however when I try to copy and paste it, although it pastes all the correct VOR/WP/Fixes into the search bar, it only actually plots a single route to a random VOR that is’t even labelled.
To give a specific example, I want to do a short flight from KSFO to KLAX using the SSTIK3 Airway ( I think thats what it is?) Which plots the route as " SSTIK3 EBAYE AVE SADDE6".
I click on Analyze route and it says it is valid, however upon copy and paste into IF, it simply routes KSFO on a direct route SE to an unnamed VOR just slightly NE of 36CN.
I also noticed that, in the tutorial when MarcelloM returns to IF and clicks on the search bar in IF to input the course, the search bar creates a pop up window that reads " Infinite Flight" but when I click it to input my info, it displays " Search Airports/Waypoints"
Even when I try to manually search for the validated route, there are some waypoints such as “ROM” that the search feature will not bring up.
