I have tried turning on the Autotrim feature using the Autotrim Toggle, but it appears just to automatically adjust the elevator, but not the ailerons or rudder. I note this as I have the HUD on and it is constantly adjusting only that trim.

I have also changed the ailerons Trim using the trim right/left commands but when I press the NUM 5 to center the trim (as that is the keystroke assigned for that), it does not do a thing (I do the NUM lock on btw).

Can someone explain how I am not using this correctly please?

Thank you.

Yes auto trim just does the elevator currently.
NUM5 is not recentre trim, it's recentre rudder and aileron. Not really used unless you use keyboard or something to fly, and have moved the rudder etc, press that and it centres it.
