I have just installed FLE v 3.3 and begun entry of a hand-written SOTA log. I notice that some of the fields in the log grid display screen are a fixed width (BAND, MODE, RST) while others (CALL, COMMENT) can be expanded with a cursor drag to accommodate longer entries.
In my version, however, the fields MY SOTA and HIS SOTA seem to be fixed at a 5 character width and refuse to expand to display the entire reference. I see other published examples where the MY SOTA field displays the entire reference (W2/GC-022) so apparently I have made an error in my setup. I have reviewed the setup and entry instructions.
Any hints how I can fix this? Or please point me to the FLE Tech Support page or an on-line FLE group.
Thanks and regards,
Once you have used it a bit and looked at the real output files, you tend not to worry about the formatting of that display. It’s just to let you know how you’re going.
FLE is a very neat product. Its compact and flexible data entry format almost perfectly matches my hand written logs. Mostly now I log at home using vk port-a-log on my old tablet because it is such a good match for SOTA and WWFF logging. And does spotting and viewing of spots very neatly too.
Anyone would think the author was a SOTA and parks operator.
Let us know if it worked! Your particular situation seems slightly different as you indicated that some of the data grid fields are fixed while some are adjustable. I figured changing the resolution/zoom settings might be a good first step in a possible resolution, however. Good luck.
Thanks for the help. Yes, simply changing my laptop DISPLAY setting in Windows to 100% (instead of 125% recommended) solved the issue with adjustable column width. What I assumed to be fixed width columns are now also adjustable. I look forward to using FLE to convert my handwritten SOTA logs into CSV and ADIF files.
Stat well & 73!
