Hi Ric, looks like you and I are having the same problem, except in my case its with DX4WIN.  Focus Helper gets me to the main DX4WIN window but not the QSO/Log entry window.  Hope Flex guys can help, I know they are very busy....  Dennis, k0eoo

Well Dennis,
You got one step further than I did
I can't get it to go anywhere
What did you put in the "otehr" field ?
I looked at the example for N1MM and got over my head very fast

I suspect that Return Focus gets us back to Writelog

But that the authors of Writelog need to include some code that when focus is returns to the program that Writelog returns the focus specifically to the QSO Entry Window.

Dennis et al,
A little more "experimenting" and I found
     I was over complicating the problem
I simply put Writelog in the field and choose a delay and it would return to  Writelog
If it was in the Entry window, that's where it went back,
Not sure yet what other places in WL make sense and if they would go back there
Will do more here
I did find that I have lost the mouse wheel for tuning, it is focused on WL !
No big deal will use the Flex Control
Dennis, in DX4WIN were you in the entry window before going to SDR ?
May be more work required to direct it to a different window than it was in

More on the mouse wheel
I am using a Logitech Trackball
If I hold the left button down and then use the wheel it still works
A bit of skill required here !!

Ric,  glad you got to Writelog OK.  I need to get to DX4WIN's LOG entry window instead of the the main DX4WIN window, I'll keep trying....

Has anyone gotten this to work with N3FJP's ACLog?  I have tried, but not very much, and have not been successful.
