Problem connecting SSDR for iOS to CW Skimmer

Has anyone been able to connect SmartSDR for iOS to CW Skimmer? It's not working here with either Skimmer Desktop or Skimmer Server. I tested with the following steps:
  • Start CW Skimmer Desktop or Server with telnet enabled.
  • Using a telnet app on the iOS device connect to the Skimmer. This works properly. Skimmer Desktop shows an active connection in the status bar.
  • Using SSDR for iOS DX Cluster feature set up a connection to the Skimmer and start it. This shows Receiving... but there is no data, and Skimmer Desktop does NOT show a connection in the status bar.
Is this a bug, or am I missing a trick?

    Hi Ed, thanks for reporting this. That's indeed a bug. The CW Skimmer telnet server behaves a bit different (non standard) but I have this fixed already here in my developer version. I am expecting to roll this out next week along with some other fixes reported here.

    Thanks again,

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.
