SmartCAT 3.1.12 - Com port selection

edited June 2 in SmartSDR CAT
The selection of both the Client COM port and CAT COM is not available anymore.
It seems the COM port is automatically selected by the software.
The latest SmartSDR CAT User Guide (3.0.19, 4/25/19) still shows both ports as selectable.
Is this something that just changed in the software or there is some configuration somewhere?

    Also fix your Computers registry.  Best way and easiest is to get a computer maintenance application, such as Clean my PC.  I think there are others also.

    Registry? I don't need to fix the registry, it was just about discovering a feature of SmartSDR CAT I wasn't aware of because I didn't read the manual carefully.

    Windows works better if you pay attention to the registry, you might be surprised at what you find. I gained much better reliability from making sure that the registry is running correctly.  Mostly pertaining to comp port registry.  Just a suggestion.....

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.
