I don't see the problem here, however I don't use RTTYWrite. If I click on
a spot in the spots window, or on the band map, the callsign appears
properly in the QSO entry window, with the cursor at the start on the
callsign. I thought it was always this way. Hitting spacebar moves the
cursor to "nr." Ver 11.07D here.

You may stumbled upon a bug in V10.79D at least as far as the SS CW module.
When the call is entered in the CALL field, either by typing by hand or by
clicking on call in the Rittyrite window the cursor is supposed to jump
backwards to the NR field so you are ready to copy his serial number. The
SS module under previous WL versions did this, but V10.79D doesn't!
If the call is typed in by hand and then the space bar is hit the cursor
does jump back to the NR field. However, if the call is clicked on in the
Rittyrite field the cursor jumps forward to the CK field. This is wrong!
The exchange will start with the serial number and now you must either hit
the space bar 3 times to cycle from CK to SECT, SECT to CALL and then CALL
backward to NR! Or, after clicking on the call in Rittyrite click again in
the NR field to be in the correct position to copy the serial number.
This is a serious defect in this WL module! Any chance Wayne or Steve can
find a cure by Sat.? I sure hope so.
