CWX Send Button

I love working CW with my FLEX 6500. (Especially with CW Skimmer) Despite owning a beautiful Vibroplex, I find I'm using my keyboard almost exclusively now. The only issue: If I move my mouse for any reason, the focus is changed and if my contact suddenly turns it back to me. I have to grab my mouse and get the cursor back to that send button. It would be nice if there was keyboard shortcut that could be used to get back in to the send mode. (Maybe there is and I just haven't found it yet.)

  I don't know of an SSDR shortcut to do that  but  it is possible to write and AutoHotKey script that would make SSDR active at the push of a key... ( I use the accent grave for that ).

I have had the same experience (except F1, the key I use most, has just brought up the "Help!" screen in whatever program I'm in, usually my logger.)  Anyway, I tend to just hit the ALT-Tab combination to bring me back to SSDR.
