How to open all four slices using a 6600M on the desktop?

Still new in using the 6600M. I feel foolish asking this for I stumbled upon successfully opening all four slice on the desktop before but the 6600M has again reverted back to open a slice on the 6600M thereby limiting to only three slices able to be opened on the desktop. I have multiplex enabled. How do I turn off the slice on the 6600M?

    Ken at tech support provided the solution. I need to "disconnect" the Front Panel from the radio by going into "Radio" and then "Switch Versions". This will perform the disconnect and then 4 slices can be opened on the desktop. Thanks Ken....

    yes I know that, I was just telling him why he only has access to 3 with smartsdr.

    go into the m control panel and select settings, then radio chooser the it should log out the M panel and give you the 4th slice.

    hope I remember this right

    Yes, just go into the Menu and select switch version. That will disconnect the M model slice.

    The curve symbol with a+ is not lighted. It extinguished when "C" slice was opened. Trying to open "D" slice on Desktop. The 6600M still is showing a pan adapter. Need to turn that off in the 6600M. Thanks

    The M panel takes up 1 slice , so you have one on the M panel and 3 on the desktop.

    Hi Bret,

    There is a way to prevent the M panel from taking up 1 slice. I had it happen but do not know how to replicate. I do know that when the 6600M booted up, the M panel showed nothing. Only then could I have 4 slices using SmartSDR on the desktop.

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.
