I've resorted to using an external keyer for now, but that detracts from portability. Seems odd to not have a Winkeyer option menu - I know that not everybody does CW anymore, but for some of us, that's all we do ;-) I use an external keyer with SmartSDR & my 6500, but I thought the Maestro CW setup would be better. Fingers crossed that this will get fixed at some point. (Also the raspy sidetone is awful, but it looks like that will be fixed in an upcoming update).
Having some serious buyer's remorse at this point, but since they're software issues hopefully they'll get fixed. Very nearly put it back in the box after using it for an afternoon.
One can debate whether it is useful to expose parameters like weight and dit/dah ratio - indeed when I was working on the original design of WinKey with K1EL I argued that he should not include them as it encouraged poorly formed code. I think that the following additional parameters could usefully be exposed. It turns out not to be a particularly large list:
Store trigger point (slider)
Dit/Dah store on/off
6 dit word spacing
