When using XIT for split operation with my 6300 and SSDR 2, it would be nice to be able to adjust the TX frequency by moving the black line using the mouse.  That would make it very easy to set TX frequency in an empty spot.

I agree using XIT for split can be cumbersome typing in the split. This will not address your request, but you can accomplish the flexibility you are desiring by opening another slice on the same band. Just deselect the TX function of say slice A and use that slice to receive the station running split. Enable the TX function of slice B and use your mouse and or flex control to vary your TX freq. You can also use your mouse to point and click where you want your TX freq or you can use your mouse to drag slice B where you want to. You can keep the receive enabled on slice B or you can mute it as well and just use visual reference to determine which station is currently being worked. Hope this helps.

Andrew... what black line? When I turn on XIT I see a red area added. It would be nice to be able to drag the red XIT area to adjust the transmit frequency. 

I use Mike's method often. It has some odd quirks I've not figured out yet. Sometimes the TX switches back to the slice that's on the DX. Then the police come out of the woodwork and chaos ensues for a minute or so. Dang embarrassing. I like XIT because I'm sure where I'm transmitting.

This is the one use case where the FlexControl seems to make sense. 

AUX2 = Tune Slice
AUX3 = XIT
Knob = None

It's pretty flexible and because I have the FlexControl on the left I can manipulate it along with the keyboard or mouse (on the right) at the same time.

I click Tune Slice to tune to the DX (or qrp fox) frequency then click XIT and adjust the knob to transmit in a clear area. Switch back to Tune Slice and the XIT offset remains ready for the next pounce.

It would be nice to use the knob as a toggle to switch between Tune Slice and XIT but I haven't figured that out yet.
