Rx Slice Identification Switching

As most of us know there are many reasons that it would be convenient if we could change the Rx Slice Identification. IE: Switch (A) with (D). This applies to 3rd party software where it only looks for Radio 1 or 2, which relates to Rx (A) and (B). My suggestion is to provide the ability to RIGHT click on say the (A) in the Rx A Flag and it would then either start Flashing or change color. Then RIGHT click on say the (D) in the Rx D Flag. The SSDR would then switch the A and D Identification on each Flag.. Everything else would Stay the same... This would be easy for the Op to do. I do not know how hard it would be for the FLEX TEAM to implement or if they have a better idea. If some form of this has already been suggested my apologies. Ken W9IE

    I still think this is a good IDEA,   but have not heard any comments
    from anyone.

    Posting it again to see if anyone else thinks it would be helpful.

    I agree.  I often get tangled up with my slices.  For example, if I am tuning with my "C" slice and find a station I would like to use the "A" features with (such as S-meter), it is a bother to close and open slices to get my "A" on the desired frequency.  Brian, W9HLQ

    Either this or some other method of slice switching would be very convenient as  a stop-gap until the logging software moves toward API/ethernet interfacing with access to multiple slices of information.

    I agree.  I often grab the wrong slice to use in digital modes and wish I could just switch it to Slice A.

    Another topic - I tried to reply to your original post, but I don't see anywhere on the screen that I can do that.  I seem to only be able to reply to messages posted below the original one.  I'm using Mozilla.

    N1MM logger uses slice A as the transmitting slice. If I transmit on any other slice, the station does not get logged....not sure how to fix this.

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.
