QSX/Breakin - I must have done something wrong!

Everything's been working great on my 6300 - I have had hundreds of CW contacts.  I don't know what I changed, but I can't seem to get the delay on breakin to work.  No matter what I do, it's always set to full QSX.  I like about a half second delay, which is what I had before.  Whether the breakin button is on or off makes no difference at all, nor does where the slider is set. 

Any idea what's going on here?

Thanks,

Steve

Are you using the keyer paddles or CWX?  The delay is independent for each one.

Set the Break-in delay on CWX on the CWX "Setup" panel on the top of the column.
Set the Breakin Delay for the Paddles on the P/CW tab when in CW mode.

If neither of these change things, you might need to do a power-off cold restart.

The hard reset did the trick.  I had reloaded and reset, but not a hard reset.  Something must have gotten stuck.

Thanks for your help!
