The short answer is: "However you like". But there are different kinds of cross country.

For flights that simply leave the pattern, the fact that you left the pattern is implicit in the fact that the "Route of flight" field contains more than one airport. If you want to find totals for these sorts of flights, MFBStaging lets you search for "non-local" flights, which is really what these are.  These flights count for Part 135 cross-country, so this can be a handy way to find your Part 135 cross-country totals.

For flights that are greater than 50nm from the original point of departure, use the Cross Country field. Note that the mobile apps will fill this in for you automatically if it sees any pair of airports in the route of flight that are more than 50nm apart from each other. There is an interpretation from the FAA here that gives some interesting perspective on this.

Finally, there is a property for logging cross-country flights under 50nm, if you so choose to do so.

My simulator time is being included in my totals (or SEL/MEL time). Why?

Why aren't my landings or takeoffs counting towards my currency?
