V17.55  4 February 2015

WinKey- Speed Changes within Messages:
    Speed changes are now consistent and reliable,
    and the displayed WPM setting (WinKey speed pot)
    is updated immediately when the cursor is in an
    empty callsign field.  If a message is being
    played, the new WPM value is shown when playback
    is complete.

    Word Spacing - WinKey:  The installation default
    for a word space when creating SD.INI is now 6 dot
    units rather than 7, as the shorter word space is
    generally preferred for contesting.  For an
    existing SD.INI, you must change the value of the
    SD_WKBIT0 parameter to 1 to enable this feature.

REF Contest:
    Fixed a screen formatting error when editing
    district codes on previously logged QSOs.

HADX Contest:
    In V17.54, HA membership numbers were flagged as
    mults as they were logged.  However, the same
    thing should have happened when previous QSOs
    were edited. This caused some QSOs to be corrupted,
    although  they could be corrected using the audit
    (AUD) file.  Fixed, thanks EI2KA.

SDCHECK - QSO Rate Report:
    Fixed, thanks G4DDX.

to adjust the size of the default window to fill
your screen. If necessary, do this for both SD and

Click on the title bar, or the SD icon, at the top
LHS of the window and select Properties, then Font.
If you have a widescreen (16:9) monitor, select the
Lucida Console font.  For a 4:3 monitor, select the
Consolas font (not available on XP).  Then choose
whatever size of font you prefer.  SD's window
expands or contracts in direct proportion to the
chosen font size.

If you find bugs in V17.55, please send me the
details.  Older versions are not supported, so
please confirm that the problem exists in V17.55.

Let me know if you have suggestions for changes,
additions, or support for new contests.
