Maestro VFO's are linked

Every once in a while I somehow get both of the VFOs linked together.  I have 2 panadapters open with one slice in each.  Lets say A is on 20m and B is on 6m.  Then every once in a while I somehow get the VFOs so that when I turn either VFO dial, both slices will change frequency.  They both go up or down in frequency as I move just one of the dials.

I'm sure this is something I'm somehow selecting but for the life of me, I can't figure it out.  I have to turn the Maestro off and then back on in order to clear up the problem.

Anyone else experiencing this?  Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    It is actually a feature, which purpose I don't understand. Between the dials there is a button labeled A>B. if you do a long press on it it locks both VFOs together (A>>B) and another long press will give you back normal use of the VFOs without having to restart the Maestro.

    Thanks for the explanation, I will research those.... I can only see advantage for linked VFOs if you are working sats to compensate for doppler. Do we have this feature in SmartSDR?
