I have a couple of questions, one about the logbook and one transmitting macros.
1. I created a few fake QSO's in the log - but I can't seem to find any way to remove them. Is there any way to delete these without deleting the entire logbook?
2. I wanted to check and see if I'm using the macro feature correctly. When I click the macro and then the send button, I hear my KX3 playing the macro (I'm in CW mode). However the transmitter doesn't key (TX light is not lit) so the macro isn't sent. However, if I long press the Send button (switching to XMIT mode), then press XMIT the TX light comes on, then I press the macro button and the macro is sent. After the macro is sent, I press the XMIT button again to stop transmitting. Is this the way it's supposed to work? I was expecting the macro to be transmitted once I had clicked the macro and then the Send button (not just play the macro in code). And, when the macro was complete it would stop transmitting automatically.
Finally, a thought about the interface. I notice that there is a code speed button and a slider bar that performs the same function, both of which take up an entire row on the interface. Changing this could make some extra screen space, for example have a SPEED+ and SPEED- button instead of the slider bar (similar to BAND and FREQ - might be able to squeeze them in all on the same row).

Hi Roger, here are my answers:
1) Not for now
2) you should be in VOX mode for the send to be working. In XMIT you don't have to press the XMIT button to make it stop sending. It stops by itself. Let me know if it doesn't.
About the slider, you're right. Probably it's not really needed to have a slider and takes a lot of room. I'll work on it in the next versions. Unfortunately changing the UI is something that takes a loooong time because it has to be done for each of the screen resolutions. But you're right and it's surely worth doing.
