You are doing right.
Maybe Tree could make it possible to enter EM00ST and have
TR-Log ignore the ST part.
You can enter the grid in the call window to
get the beam heading if you like.

There is not a way to change this.
On 6m I run the grid map in VGA mode on the higher bands I run it
in the normal mode - it does cover up the eidt window but as you
make contacts you will see that the edit window
and needs window come into view and it works pretty well.
I find it useful to change the beam heading, mult and qso needs
windows and text a diffrent color than the grid map so that
they are eaiser to see.
