I really like the new Focus Helper function in V1.3.  I selected OTHER and in Window entered DX4WIN and set a delay of 2500 ms, and eureka, it works.  Focus is given to the main DX4WIN window, in the upper left hand corner of the picture.  And needs to be the LOG window just below that window.  See attachment:  So, how do I change focus to the LOG window?

In order to return focus to the right window inside an application, there has to be a way to get information about which window to switch to. The only application that we have integrated that handles the specific window information automatically is N1MM. We will add other applications to the list according to demand and the ability to interface with them.


When using the "Other" selection, we find the window to use by name. So another way to make this work is to use the name specific to the window you want to use. This may not be obvious from looking at the application window, so it may be necessary to interact with the application developer to get the exact window name string that will work.

Good luck and let us know if you have additional questions.
