On the fly editor focus on scenario line if checked, when on the fly editor window is shown, line with focus will be radio 1 or radio 2 scenario (depends if user pressed SHIFT+F key in when radio 1 or radio 2 has focus). If not checked, standard cw message
line will be focus. Of course, user can change focus in the editor screen by pressing on TAB SHIFT/TAB key. (TNX IK2NCJ, N6TV)
New shortcuts available:
ALT + UP/DOWN changes radio frequency for 10 Hz SHIFT + ALT + UP/DOWN changes radio frequency for 100 Hz
Bandmap "jumping" when spot is clicked is now fixed. This was happening because frequency was set to radio object and sent to CAT.
