On the buses, the MCDU tells you the optimum.

Are you talking about when you chose your flight plan and it gives you an altitude of lets say 10,000ft? You just move that altitude up and down with the arrows.
Now if you are flying VFR and not IFR than just select what ever altitude you want on the Autopilot Panel.
Just because you downloaded an airbus plane does not mean it comes with the panel. You have to download one.

Thanks

P.S

Why do the ATR start to beep some times and some aircraft say "pull up - pull up-pull up" ???

Why do aircraft yell out for you to pull up? Simple. They are trying to say they are better than you at flying. Kind of like a backseat driver.

If changing the altitude, always change it upwards. This is so you do not encounter any terrain in flight.
EG. If the Flight planner gives you 10,000 feet, by all means change it, but change it to an altitude above 10.000 feet. This is because there may be terrain if you fly below 10,000 feet, get the idea?

European: Makes sure you airbrakes are not up and your pitch is okay and flaps are set right.
And the PULL UP WOOP PULL UP. Means that you having to much of a decent rate and it thinks you will crash. Most of the time it is right. But sometimes it is not. You have to make the call to pull up or not.
