In FSX, interactive elements may lose their clickspots in certain light conditions (dusk or dawn). Switching on the panel lights usually helps. Worth a shot?

Thanks for the tip.
Tried that but doesn't help .....
Besides, this wouldn't explain why the clickspot visibility depends on the exact eyepoint position in this case.
In any light condition, shifting the eyepoint left and right a bit will hide resp. show the clickspots.
As a sidenote: the zoomfactor, or small fore/aft movement of the eyepoint, has no influence as well.

Rob, try increasing the height of the lighted elements above the background. It may be that they are too close for the sim to properly draw them from certain angles.

Bill, I do both polygon button and light (ON/hidden) polygon have same mouse react, for light ( ON/hidden ) I add Visibility. so in the even button polygon covered by light polygon. the light polygon has same mouse react.

If objects disappear when viewed from some other angle that the pilot's eyepoint, then clearly something is being drawn in front of the object(s) and is hiding them from view.
