2.5.1 Install

Installed 2.5.1 and when I start the program the radio goes to a double red flash on the power button and reboots.

    I did not do a reset, and it installed OK.  The Best Practices sheet make no mention of this & tells to do a Cold Boot.  A formal FLEX update/upgrade procedure is needed and should be included with the new s/w.
    I did make the mistake of clicking on the pinned to toolbar SSDR icon I had for 2.4.9 which prompted me to "downgrade".  When I figured out the new s/w did not update the icon like some developers do, I unpinned 2.4.9 & pinned 2.5.1 & all was good.- Bob W8RMV

    Did a cold boot after installing per install notes.  Worked fine. Zero issues.

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.
