Poor CW keying

Using FLEX-6500 Signature Series SDR with added "SmartSDR v1.3", SN: 32313-0588-6500-8922 & Dell Win7 with i5 proc.

The CW characters/symbols created by CWX are atrocious! Using a hand key or my years old electronic key-er does a perfect job. I have tried to make CW contact but zilch. I think I know why, now.

I have gone through the 'Master reset' procedure (my term), recycle transceiver & power supply to no avail. Power out is nominal.

What have I messed up?

Reset your persistence database as described on page 6, item #2 in the SmartSDR v1.3 Release Notes in the Known Issues, Caveats and Limitation section. 

Let me know if that fixed your issue.
