Another way to adjust sliders
Here is another option to adjust the value in sliders like CW speed, RF power, etc. It may be easier than trying to drag or click on some PCs. and laptops. It also shows the value as you move.

What do you think?

Al, I like this idea, particularly for certain sliders that small increments are needed. For example I have found AGC-T sometimes needs single increments that are touchy with a mouse. Maybe up/down arrows for single increments and page up/down for increments of 5?

Dave, the PAGE UP/DOWN works now. Nothing new is needed to use it. Give it a try.

You can also mouse click to the right of the silver knob to increase by 1, and click to the left of the silver knob to decrease by 1. This works on every control in the GUI. Jim/WD5IYT

The development team agreed this is a great idea so we have implemented this. I believe it is in 0.17 if not before. Let us know what you think and keep those ideas coming!

Steve,
The PAGE UP/DOWN already works. The control just treats it like a mouse click to the left or right. I discovered this by accident recently and should have noted it as a TIP in the title.

Al, I figure this may be of those "legacy" windows "features" like the space bar PTT trick. It is handy, though. It has already made adjusting the finicky Display FPS control a lot easier.
