Locked Re: Changing and SAVING a configuration

Bill Somerville


you can do exactly that with a slight twist. Before you start experimenting save your working configuration by cloning it (you can overwrite an existing configuration if you wish to use the same name over and again, just use "Clone into ..." in that case). Then you have a point you can return to if you don't like the results of your experiments.

I realize wat you are saying and it seems I have no choice but it is still much more a pain than the way it would work if I could make a change and then do a save to a named configuration. That is the way every other program I have works and it is very easy to goof up with the way this works. I see I have no choice so will just have to accept it.

Pretty much what I thought and HATED but I guess I will learn to live with it. Having to terminate to do this is a real PITA and I have no other program that requires this but it is what it is. Thanks for your reply and I will try to remember this process.

you are making this much more complicated that it is in reality. There is no need to terminate WSJT-X to do anything with configurations. Just treat each configuration as you would treat WSJT-X without configurations, i.e. you change settings as required - that's it, no more, no less.

If you need a separate configuration then clone another that is close to where you want to start, give it a name that is meaningful to you. While you are switched to a configuration make any changes you need to, when you switch away from it, and back to it later; it will be exactly as you left it, just like exiting WSJT-X and restarting brings back the same settings.
