Minor CW wish list item

I know this is a really small thing, but I think it is probably pretty easy to implement.  When I turn Breakin off, the paddles and straight key behave as expected - sidetone is keyed, but radio does not transmit.  So far so good.  However, if I use CWX to send a memory, or send using the keyboard, it keys the transmitter regardless of the Breakin setting.  I know that I can set the RF power to zero, but I find it annoying that Breakin does not also control CWX.  If this could be changed, I would sure appreciate it!

    I agree 100%. I complained about this a long, long time ago, but nothing has happened. It absolutely should not transmit if Breakin is turned off. Period.

    Yes, some requests for CWX additions were made 5 years ago and were "under consideration".
    I'm thinking of beacon mode, pause for auto CQ's etc.

    With the FRLogger CW panel you can create very powerful macros such as beacon mode, adding delay or pause between CQ's, etc.  Check it out !

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.
