Well known problem. I meant to put out a message last week warning about
the problem and detailing how to fix it.
You can still fix it in time for SS Phone!
1. Start a new log for the contest.
2. Go to Contest, Exchange Format Setup.
3. Click on each of the Exchange fields and make sure there is a check mark
on the box labeled "Tab Only."
This prevents the cursor from automatically going on to the next field when
the current one is full.
