Freelance DCS Faceplates have View Selection Area disabled

I'm using FreeLance 2016 SP1 demo. For unknown reasons, when i run FreeLance Operations demo, all faceplate (of standard FB and user FB) have View Selection Area ( Bottom area with 3 buttons) disabled. Is this because my FreeLance license is trial? How to enable it?

The demo version has no such restrictions. What is your operating system?
Best regards

Hi TruongND,

The View Selection Area was removed in version 2016 of Freelance. It was never used, as all Freelance faceplates have only one view, so the R&D decided to remove it. See this snippet from Release document for v2016:

Hope this clears things out.

Best Regards,

Mike

You can compare the manuals and you will find that the look of the displayes has changed. It was also just look and feel.

This is an image of faceplate in T568 FreeLance 800F System Engineering RevC, a training document that I have. The bottom area of faceplate has 3 buttons.
