N1MM+ tune option (CTL+T) does not work with CAT WinKeyer

Finally a way to remove the wire from computer to 6000 for N1MM CW keying.  Two problems were encountered:

First was user RTFM re engaging WinKeyer in CAT.  No matter what I did nothing would key RF but would trigger PTT with no problem.  Once I found the hidden "Advanced" and the WinKeyer setting this problem went away.

Second my testing method was to use CTL+T to trigger tune.  Eventually I found the CW function keys worked properly.  Tune still does not work.  Another user error?

SSDR "TUNE" is a working option; just not as convenient.

  As far as I can tell, CTL-T would have to generate a CAT command to put the radio into TUN but SSDR CAT does not have a TUN command documented.  But FRStack could be map CTL-T to TUN even when N1MM has focus.  ( FRStack does not use CAT but rather the FlexLib API )

Seem to work for me but YMMV.

This feature is not supported via CAT.  But as Al said it is supported by the radio API, however N1MM does not use the API to communicate with the radio.
