SmartSDR Radio Backlight Control

I'm not seeing a way to disable the radio's controls backlight on my 6400M when I'm running SmartSDR. The user manual shows it under the Settings>Radio tab, but mine does not. I'm running 3.3.33 now. It shows that it is a 6400M and I have it disabled for local operation. Shame to have it on when remote. Any ideas. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Yea, it's on the radio but when I shift to SmartSDR the backlight comes on with no way of turning it off in the software. Sorry if I didn't make that clear. Thanks for the suggestion!

    @Rick_KJ5WO I run mine in SmartControl mode. That option is always on the front panel.

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.
