Tuning step size - 2 panadapters issue

Playing with my new 6600 M for a week now and just super impressed - great radio. Thanks Flex team!  

One small issue I'm having (v is when using two panadapters I can't figure out how to independently set the tuning step size on each.  Setting panadapter A to tune in 5 Hz increments works great, but then setting panadapter B to tune in 100 Hz increments results in changing the tuning increment on A to 100 Hz as well. This works either way - the tuning step set on one panadapter seems to be immediately inherited by the other.  This happens if both panadapters are on the same or different bands, and regardless if setting the step size on the 6600M front panel, or using SmartSDR for Windows. I also tried enabling/disabling Snap to Tune but that didn't fix it either. The video below illustrates using the 6600 M front panel.

Any ideas?

Thank you! John, AF3K

The 6600M is working as designed.  Tune Steps are mode dependent, not slice or panadapter.  SCUs (connected antenna) have nothing to do with Tune Steps values.
