How to set Transmit Delay?

Radio is 6600M Ver. 3.5.9, driving a PGXL with a TGXL.

I am a CW operator and I was experimenting setting my transmit delay (Menu/Transmit/TX Delay) to eliminate clipping the first dot off my callsign. This is a new problem possibly caused by cold restarting the radio. The value is currently 0ms. When the radio worked properly, TX Delay was 40ms.

Previously, I changed this value by touching the number. This caused a little numeric keypad to appear on the screen which I used to enter whatever number I wanted. I'd hit 'return' and the number was entered into the TX Delay field and the keypad disappeared.

Now, I seem to have **** something up. I touch the number field and an odd little window opens instead of the numeric pad. In that window I must write the number I want to enter and then hit 'return'. That will enter the written number in the TX Delay field. It will stay there until I hit the key. Then the number reverts to 0ms.

So, I have 2 questions: How do I get the numeric keypad back and, How do I get the number to stay in the TX Delay field?

I realize this is due to operator error, but I still can't seem to fix it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated,

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.
