I don't use an external log program with WSJT-X. I let it log internally, then import its .adi file into another log. Mostly, I was doing that at the end of 2018, when I got my KX3. I did a fair bit of FT8 back then, and I didn't use N3FJP then. I mostly imported my contacts into the QRZ logbook. I also don't use WSJT-X along with WinK3Suite, because WSJT-X is enough to control the frequency. I use the WinK3Suite so I don't have to crane my neck around to use the KX3. Running FT8 doesn't require the extra rig control software. The only rig controlling necessary is setting frequency and keying. Even audio is controlled largely by Windows settings, or using the Power slider in WSJT-X. So while I HAVE all of those pieces of software, I generally don't have to use them all *at the same time*. WSJT-X will do just fine logging the contacts internally. Then you can do what you need to do with the .adi file. That's what I did.
N3FJP does integrate well with WinK3Suite, using their com port pass-through capability, the "3rd party software" feature. But there's no need to add WSJT-X into that, so I've never run all three at the same time.
