    AB5XS LA4XLA. Havent seen a fix for it yet. It works fine on another computer with a fresh install av Windows.

    Uninstall new install of Smart SDR does not fix it. I think it must be some settings left in the registry, either under "Local Machine\Software\Flex..." or "Current User\Software\Flex..."

    Uninstall SmartSDR, Reboot, and delete any leftovers in registry. Then do a new fresg install Smart SDR.

    I will have the "problem computer" by hand coming weekend so i caninvestigate and see if i can find the specific setting hat leads to this window behaviour.

    I will post back if i find out.

    Off the subject, but what is the formatting in you last comment? I've seen it before in other posts.

    It is very difficult for me to read.

    I copied from an email. I couldn’t figure out how to delete it.

    Basically he is suggesting to delete this file:

    "C:\Users\UserXXX\AppData\Roaming\FlexRadio Systems\SSDR.settings"

  • This has bit me in the rear end a couple of times. I have now stored the f ix in Evernote amongst a number of other Flex fixes and work arounds.

    edit: I had a question about this solution. But then found the same answer in a slightly less ambiguous form and from an unimpeachable sourse - Tim. Look here:🙃

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.
