Folks, don't forget your resources! ;)
The Forum has a Wiki.
There, under "Generic Buildings" you have a Tutorial, which explains all the features and characteristics of Generic Buildings, how to change them, how to construct them - and the lot.
You find it under...
as stated in the introduction of the manual, FS9-related issues have in the manual a red surrounding, FSX-related issues a blue one.
Page 140 is blue :D
This should make further Manual reading easier
I do not check this forum on a regular basis (I know I should :()
However I check occasionally for comments about the Manual.
That's how I found your posting today.
Your observation is absolutely correct.
Thank you very much for it. It is tricky to spot the fault - so may fours and...
An explanation, not an excuse ;):
Please keep in mind, that the Manual is valid for ADE v.1.65.
Of course the Beta-version 1.67 has (by definition) a lot of changes.
I try to keep track of them.
But a documentation update only makes sense, when a new "final" ADE-version is published by Jon...

- I will look for it in Jon's notes and add it to the list for the next Manual version
- I did not create a list with Keyboard Shortcuts. It's a good idea to add this too.
How to make aprons and ground polys more or less transparent is described in chapter 4.3.6 in the Manual.
It was not included in earlier manual-versions, V.1.65 is the first one.
The feature must have been introduced in 2014.
I did not check the Change Notes :( for more clarification
Taylor, you are absolutely right.
The time to peruse the Manual started the day after it was published. ;)
I have created a list with corrections/suggestions to be used for the next release.
What is your input?
Concerning the ADE version indeed the Manual is based on version 1.65.
Jon Masterson (scruffyduck) - the author of ADE added some improvements after the release of 1.65 and called it 1.66 in order to give it a "final" status.
Of course the manual does not mention these improvements. But you...
