SmartSDR v1.10.16 "File Settings Profiles Help" tabs. Problem

Patrick Member ✭✭✭
edited June 2020 in SmartSDR for Windows
Using the latest version 1.10.16 of SmartSDR.  The pull down window times out when using any of the  "File Settings Profiles Help" tabs. previous versions the selections under the tab would hold as long as the mouse pointer was within the window.  Now you click on the, for example Profiles tab (mine is fairly long or large) click and move to one of the listed selections, and with in about one seconds the window closes.  If I am not fast enough I have to try again.  This is not the way it worked before.  Is this something new?

    Not seeing that behavior here.  They all stay open until I move to the next one or click outside the box.

    Not happening to me either. It almost sounds like you have another program stealing the focus away from SSDR. By chance under Radio Setup do you have anything listed in Focus Helper?

    Do you have some other program that might be popping up (even hidden off screen) that might be taking focus away?

    Another thought, some program that is running and it's option is set to 'always on top'?

    Kevin has the answer . Focus helper is a great help, but occasionally a frustration. I set the delay for two seconds, which is more helpful.

    Yup that is it.... Thanks for the help.   Maybe they need to rethink how focus  works with the computer, such as a branch test to see if it a control function in the radio is being affected,  just a thought....

    Thanks Kevin and Ken....
