Remote Laptop CW

Is there a way to use a CW paddle on a laptop for remote operation on a Flex 6400?

    As far as i know, no. There have been lots of threads about this on the board.

    Mac users can use xKEY, which uses a Teensy board as a very effective interface. Works even better than the keyer implementation in SmartSDR for Mac.

    For Windows, no. At least not that I have found. It's a severe (and IMHO) ridiculous shortcoming.

    Hi Tom, Here is one solution. I believe that there are others as well, including one that works with Mac computers. I have not tried this, but thought it might answer your need.

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.
