Rick,
 
Based on my experience with the XG11 and looking at the XG14 manual, your trims can be either common for all of the flight modes or flight mode specific. The choice you make will apply to all of the trims. You can’t have only the throttle trim be common (or disconnected from the flight modes) while the others are still flight mode specific. In the System List’s Trim System menu on page 2, there is the FMOD TRIM: option that can be set to either COM or FMOD.
 
For my glow-powered planes, I don’t use the throttle trim method. On my older transmitters, I set up a program mix for an engine kill. On the XG transmitters there are several premixes that can shut off an engine by using a switch not connected to flight modes, the THRO HOLD menu or the throttle cut in the THRO TRIM menu.
