New changes in Smart SDR 1.3.8

I just downloaded SmartSDR 1.3.8 and found that the settings for the FlexControl box have changed. It's good that now the buttons change functions, RIT, XIT, speaker volume. But how do I get out of that function? It should be just press the button again, but no, it's stuck in that mode. If I double-click on the function, the value resets but the function is still enabled. How do I go from RIT back to main frequency tune on the knob? Same for XIT and volume control.

Hi Ben. You are exactly correct: press a button the Flex Control and it switches to that function. As you noted, it stays in that function. To get out of that function, simply select another function. For example, you push the RIT button, the button lights up, and now turning the main knob will vary the RIT. If you want the knob to control frequency again, simply push the knob. The RIT button light goes out, and now the knob will tune frequency. The nice part of this is that it allows you to switch from RIT to speaker volume, to XIT, or frequency tuning. Just hit the button of your choice. And you can set the various buttons to control many other functions as well. Yes, takes a little getting used to, but it becomes second nature very quickly.

Hope this helps.

It appears that if you want to leave RIT where it is, just change to a different function/button.  But if you want to reset RIT back to zero, double click the button.
