Physical KB function keys do not run the CWX macros

I am able to run the CWX 'macros' just fine when I press the onscreen function key with the mouse while in SETUP but there is no connection to the physical KB function keys. Pressing the KB function keys does nothing.

Suggestions for a relative noobie? Didn't see anything on-point in the user guide,

    For the KB function keys to trigger CWX macros, the  windows focus must be SSDR.  ( assuming that something else is not interfering with the normal windos operation).

    As Al mentions, if you happen to click to another program and do not click back on something within PowerSDR, PSDR is not the active program, the KB "F" keys do not work.  Was scratching my head on that one day and found the solution.

    As mentioned above, SSDR must be the active program. Ckick on your panadapter screen, and the function buttons will work.

    Hmmm...seems like I did not have SmartSDR's attention whenever I was trying to use the function keys. Just tried it and sure enough it worked as advertised!!
    Case closed.
    Thanks all.

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.
