Clearing unwanted Callsign

Post by VK7XX » 20 Apr 2014, 23:59

I wonder if anyone else has this......... Vers 1.17.1.0
If I type a call in to the callsign box and then either do nothing else, or tab so that the name etc details get filled (from qrz, I am a subscriber) AND I then decide I do not want to log the entry, IF I use the keyboard ALT/W to clear the info, the cursor jumps back to the 'Callsign' box which is correct, but it becomes inactive and I cannot they type anything without first clicking the box (or somewhere on the window.).... However, if click the CLR button over on the right hand side of the page, all works correctly.

John,
Try the Esc (escape) key on your keyboard

Thanks Terry. Yes, the ESCape key works just fine.. I am so used to using Alt/W that it just comes naturally. Maybe it can be fixed sometime in the future.. It certainly is not a "must have" fix.

You can also doubleclick in the Callsign field to clear all the fields .... ;) ;)

ALT-W should work exactly as double-click/esc
i'll check for possible issues on that.
Thanks for reporting

just saw that ALT button is catched by the MENU on top bar, so focus is on menu instead of the field.
Searching for a solution...
