I've been trying to set up this program, and I wanted to make it so that I could return to a centered and non-moving view with the press of a button. So I bound "Bind joystick to views" and "Center without return" to the same buttons (Num5 and Btn7 on my joystick). But the view in the game remains unchanged - it neither centers nor stops moving with the joystick when I press one of these buttons.
I've double checked, and all the needed view controls are unbound in the game's controls menu.
Anyone have any idea why this is happening and how I can fix it?

Do you have the right Device No selected in NewView? When you're looking at the Joystick tab in NewView, do you see "128" replace "0" in the output section when you press joystick buttons ?

Are you saving your button assignments to the INI file when you select them in Buttons > Combinations > Controls ? Does the INI in the 'view settings in ini' subtab say J1=B7 next to the functions "Center Without Return" and "Bind Joystick To Views" ?

Yes, and yes.
The INI says J2=7, not J1=7, but I assume this is simply because I have the joystick button bound as the secondary button, and the keyboard as primary.

You have in fact told NewView only to perform these actions when both the keyboard key and the joystick button are pressed at the same time, or at least, that's what it sounds like.

It's in the NewView help document as of beta02.

Set the "button no 1" tab on the right of the control menu to the joystick button you want and you should be fine. And clear out whatever is in "button no 2" beneath it.
