DXCommander, Spotcollector and SmartSDR, I'm not seeing spots before my eyes

I am running DXComander 15.4.4, SpotCollector 3.4.2 and the latest SmartSDR . Commander sees my A & B slices and changes frequencies correctly. On the Bandspread tab of Commander "Display call on panadator" is checked.

In SpotCollector, I am seeing spots and can click on a spot and the Flex will change to that frequency.

On the Flex, spots are enabled and I know they can be displayed because if I use SliceMaster they appear.

I am not seeing spots from SpotCollector on the panadapter, however. What have I missed?

I appreciate any help. Thanks.

    SpotCollector 3.4.2??? Are you sure? The current version is 9.2.1. Are spots enabled on the SmartSDR menu? It works just fine for me.

    Thanks Mike,

    Per the link, I've been through the settings two or three times now, but still no luck. Odd.

    I could never get sending Spots with SpotCollector 3.4.2 to SmartSDR to work either.

    I have tried several times as well

    Craig,

    What I get for using copy and paist, Yes I am running 9.2.1 as well and I have the SmartSDR checked.

    What other programs are you running while it's working out of the DXLAB suite besides SpotCollector?

    Well, I'm not running 9.2.1!! Don't ask me how I wound up with 3.4.2 but I'm going to go out and look for the latest right now. Thanks!!

    Thank you Craig! Yes indeed, everything works as expected when you get the latest version. I didn't realize how the DXLab Launcher worked and just assumed that it had installed the latest version. I had to click config and check for an update.

    Looks like a very handy program. I do wish that there was better support for Flex slices. I'm going to have to rearrange things. Maybe Flex should pay some of these guys to support SmartSDR more completely.

    Thanks again.
