CWX goes to sleep

edited June 2020 in SmartSDR for Windows

I have several of the usual CW macros stored in CWX and they work fine, but if I don't use them for a few minutes they don't work unless I click on SEND first or click on the correct F number in setup.... CWX seems to go to sleep if not keyed for a few minutes... Is this normal??? Pain in the %^&* if it is.

    Maybe you moved your mouse during that time. If you move your mouse you're going to have to hit the send button again. Not sure what the solution for this is but it is very annoying, especially when someone sends you a quick BK. Maybe there's a way to quickly get back to the send mode from the keyboard but I haven't found it yet.

    It does not work that way for me. As long as focus is on the SSDR window, CWX from the function keys works every time (so far.)

    If your "focus" isn't on SSDR, then the CWX function keys will not send. The keys will do whatever they are programmed to do in whatever program has focus. If you have been entering something in your log or checking your DX cluster or antenna rotor, then CWX is not active. I sometimes forget that when sending with winkeyer emulation in ACLog, wondering why sometimes it sends the macros in CWX and other times the macros in ACLog!
