Question: SimBrief oddity (or not?)

i tried to create some of my first flight plans with simbrief today and it seems there’s something i don’t get at all.

departure: LIMJ

arrival: LEAL

add in the router finder as a fixed segment: LFMN

and got as a result: LAGE7K LAGEN Q712 ENOBA LFMN STP A3 RUBIT G7 POMEG GERVU

the maps looks like this afterwards and i was kind of happy with it:

however, after generating the OFP the route looks like this then:

what could it be that i’m not getting here?
anyone?

thank you.

In the flight plan setup screen on simbrief, make sure that “Detailed Navlog” is checked. If I put in tthe departue and destination you mention, I get a proper fltight plan just like you did and when I generate OFP it remains proper. But if I uncheck “detailed navlog” then I get the same thing you are seeing and asking about.

oh my… thank you so much - you saved my weekend, hahaha ! i probably never would have thought that the chosen report type could be the issue. not at all.

is it supposed to work like that or is it a bug?

after watching the simbrief youtube tutorial i thought that the non-detailed report is the same just well, somewhat more compact.

I remember that leg from the 28th Altlantic North trip.

it’s gotta be awesome to do this route in a real plane - it’s ALL about the scenery, hahaha.
