    Uwe, the F1-Key is not used exclusively for SmartSDR, it can be "pirated" by other programs.
    Reboot, start SmartSDR only and retry. Hunt for other programs which might use the function keys.

    Uwe, die Funktionstaste F1 wird nicht nur von SmartSDR benutzt, auch andere Programme
    können ihn für sich vereinnahmen. Starte den Computer und SmartSDR neu und suche evtl. nach
    weiteren Programmen, die die Funtionstasten benutzen können.
    Du kannst mich auch jederzeit unter [email protected] kontaktien.

    The CWX Function keys only work if SSDR is the program "in focus." If another program window is the "active one, then the CWX Function keys will not work. The currently active window's function keys will take over. As Alex said, other programs or utilities may have redefined the F1 key so that it won't work even when SSDR is the active window. This can be esepecially confusing when you have one set of CW macros set in CWX, and a different set in your logging program (such as N1MM). The Function keys will sent different messages depending upon which program's window is "active." Good luck. Ken -NM9P

    Hi, I guess it has nothing to do with Smart sdr because it worked before a win up date was done.

    In Meantime - I got ist . On my keyboard Fn + F12 solved the problem

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.
