Looking for advice with the Logitech x52 software

Good day everyone,

I’m looking for assistance with the programming software for the Logitech x52 hotas. I know the device can be mapped in game, but i would like to take advantage of the mode switch. So far I haven’t found a way to program it in game, so I’m attempting to program it with the driver software. Despite everything I’ve tried, the game seems not to recognize the keyboard commands assigned to joystick buttons.

When I consult the almighty Google, I’m met with lots of posts of “don’t you prefer to program it yourself?” or suggested bindings, but nothing on how to make msfs like profiled bindings from Logitech’s joystick driver.

I’m starting to get really frustrated with this, it feels like it should be easier and I’m just missing a critical step.
