[DXLog.net - Support] A feature wish - "AutoSend"

Hi Bob,

Yes, I know that and I'm using it when using Win-Test. It recognize / as 
well, but have only autosend after 3 or 4 characters. And - I'm not a 
"Insert/Plus" user. I didn't use CT very much - I used TR Log in the 
beginning and I prefer ESM.

I think the AutoSend feature is smarter in N1MM, as it starts on the first 
character typed after the last figure in the suffix. That takes care of 
calls like K5C, where the AutoSend starts when i type C and in a call like 
SM2013ABC/P (faked call), where AutoSend starts when I type A in the suffix. 
If I've been using Win-Test with such a call Win-Test AutoSend have started 
the transmit when I have typed the 0 in 2013 and I couldn't hear the rest of 
the call. In the first case with K5C the AutoSend function in Win-Test was 
useless, as I didn't type a fourth character.

Semicolon is not a good INSERT substitute for us in SM, because we have to 
use SHIFT and , to get the ; (two finger/hand command)

INSERT is on a separate button, so that is a one finger command.

But as said before - I'm an ESM user...

FYI, in Win-Test, this is under

Options -> CW -> Auto sending...

and there are text commands to enable it CWAUTO / CWAUTO3 / NOCWAUTO etc.

But in the mean time, you can always press INSERT at any time, then finish
typing the rest of the call.  You do not have to type the complete call
then press INSERT.

You can also use the semicolon key [;] in addition to INSERT (as in N1MM)
by using the DEFINEKEYS text command to map [;] to INSERT.
