Bandwidth Presets - SmartSDR and Maestro v2.4.9

The manual states that the maximum receive bandwith is 4 KHz. My presets on SmartSDR and the Maestro are 1.8K, 2.1K, 2.4K, 2.7K, 3.3K, and 6.0K. When hitting BW select on the Maestro it cannot go to the 6.0K preset and is stuck at 3.3K. How can I change the presets to not include 6.0K?

    I believe the 6K preset is for AM mode only.

    You can manually adjust them with the Hi & Lo Bandwidth knobs but I don't think its a profile you can preset to a new value.

    I have a workaround for the problem. Select the bandwidth settings you want as "Favorites" by pressing and holding the preset bandwidth button on the Maestro (see Maestro User Guide Section 17.2.) Just don't select the Bandwidth it gets stuck on and the settings will roll around like they should when you keep pressing BW Select.

    I have discovered that DXLab Commander was preventing the Flex to go above 4.9 KHz in SSB and 1 KHz in CW. To fix this, enter the DXLab Commander Configuration. Under the General Tab check Full-Width RX Filters.

    It appears the max bandwidth was limited in Commander to allow the Filter Sliders better control. The developers thinking was if the max RX BW was allowed to be too large the slider would be too difficult to use. I don't use the sliders so it doesn't matter to me!

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.
