V18.32  2 June 2016

SD's DXpedition Logger Option:
    The logging screen was corrupt when reloading
    logs, although it could be fixed by the CLEAR
    command.  Fixed, thanks PA0JNH.

    On reloading logs, the DXCC analysis in the
    Score window was correct but country checking
    was reset.  Fixed.

Super Check Partial (SCP):
    MASTER.DTA is again included with SD's installation
    files. Up-to-date copies are freely available from

    Some events benefit from a custom SCP file, for
    example the CWops mini-tests each Wednesday. This
    is controlled by the template SCP_FILE parameter.
    If the custom DTA file is not found, SD looks for
    MASTER.DTA and loads it. If MASTER.DTA is not found,
    SD tells you and continues with SCP disabled.


SD in Windows 10.
    Here are the recommended "Properties" settings
    for SD in Windows 10. These settings minimise or
    eliminate display errors when moving or re-sizing
    SD's window.

    While it is possible to access "Properties" when
    SD is running, the recommended option is to do
    this from SD's desktop startup icon - right-click
    on the icon and select Properties (the last item
    on the list).

    The only tabs of interest are Options, Layout
    and Font - in that sequence.

    You need to do this once only - for both SD and
