Am I doing it wrong or does Profiles NOT include a power out setting

I created a WSJT-x profile and hoped it that when I started or opened WSJTx it would start at 40 watts, but I must have done it wrong as it always starts with the RF Power Set at minimum.

You're not doing anything wrong, I can't get that to save as well.

I guess I have not noticed that problem, but I will take your word for it.. 
I normally leave my SSDR power set to MAX for all modes ( except when running the External PA) and use the power control in the WSJT, etc. to control the power output.   DDUtil controls the SSDR power output when I use the PA.

Welcome to the Vacuum created by the lack of detailed documentation about persistence, Global. Profiles, Tansmit Profiles.

Flex has promised documentation but until it is published your guess as to what might be saved is as good as anyone else's.

I believe this is part of the transmit profile. Enjoy

I've set tx profiles for amp use (reduced power) and normal for 100 watt operation. TX profiles do save power. I also found that TX profiles will save cw delay although there is no visual indication it does so. I've been able to switch between the amp and normal TX profiles several times and the power and cw delay will change accordingly. I have found however that clicking on the cw delay button when in the amp profile delay will immediately change from to 10 from 140. (again the visual indicator does not change). There is a bit of ambiguity as to how this all interacts, and I'm still trying to learn. The concept of global and transmit is new to me. I do miss the simple bandstacking most current rigs today employ, not sure why we can't have both.
