When controlling power from flex control there is no visual feedback on the new setting

I have my FlexControl setup to control the power output of the radio; however when adjusting the power using the control, there is not feedback on the actual value being set. Hovering over the power button in the smartSDR shows the actual power output value, but it would be really helpful if it were shown when being adjusted from the FlexControl

This applies equally to all the sliders in SSDR when they are adjusted using APIs such as the CMD micro, or the flex control knob. You have to put the mouse back on the slider to get a reading to find out what you got because there is no numeric feedback of the adjustment.

That would be one of the many Basic features missing from SSDR 1.10.

Would be nice to have a selectable "Show All Values" button or menu option.

This technically isn't a problem since the software is working by design. What you what is a change to that design.   I have changed this to an Idea post to facilitate user feedback.

Let me add to that the ability to click on a slider and enter a numeric value is definitely needed.
For example, click the power slider and enter 10 for 10 watts.

The other simple feature would be if you double click on the title or the slider itself that it will reset to the default value.

Again another example, trying to get the speaker balance exactly back to the center is difficult. But you should be able to double click on the slider and it will default to the center position.
