Lots of Europeans like to use cut numbers, I like to work lots of Europeans.
You won't  hear
me complain about them.  I knew TR converts them when you type them in, neat
that Writelog does as well.
 I convert  in my head and type the right thing most of the time.  I like
the T for the leading 0, get a bit bored when sending 1000 series with full
0.  When a snappy European is in line to get 1009 or something like that, I
reach over and use the paddle to send some cut numbers and save a few
seconds. A US guy would get the full number as would anyone I wasn't pretty
sure would appreciate the cut number.  W2UP would get full numbers, but at
80 wpm.

It is a nice option to be able to send cut numbers; I never select it in
TRlog, but if you want to penetrate the Euro market deeply, it could be a
desirable feature.

My WPX CW effort is now burnt to CD ROM, full audio and all..slick.
