Hey FLEX-3000 and FLEX-5000 owners or soon-to-be owners: We recently had a trouble ticket where a new customer was "sold" a USB to Firewire Adapter. Sadly, this unit is NOT a Firewire device and damaged his FLEX-3000. We don't understand how these things can be sold but to date, we have not found a single USB to Firewire "adapter" that is anything more than snake-oil. Please be careful if you are considering this for your FLEX-Series radio. 73, Greg - K5GJ

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
