Bill/All,

Win10 platform running WSJTX v2.1.1 and just started using the "Dark Mode" command line per Bill's guidance to invoke dark mode effective 1/13/20.

Not sure if it is related, but on or abouts that same time frame the "Band Activity" window in WSJT-X goes blank after a few hours of operation.

Seems that WSJT-X continues to decode and post to Hamspots and the "Rx Frequency" window is getting updated.  Audio is still streaming as the audio meter on the lower left corner of WSJT-x is registering what it always has ~40db .....

A double click on the "Erase" button resolves this for a few hours and then it reverts to the blank "Band Activity" window ... see attachment

All thoughts/resolutions welcome

Hi Ed,

this is a known issue that we don't currently have a fix for. The decodes are printed but are scrolled off the top of the band activity window, you can verify this by scrolling the window down. The issue occurs after a large number of decodes have printed but only when the option "Settings->General->Display->Start new period decodes at top" is checked.

The current workarounds are to uncheck "Settings->General->Display->Start new period decodes at top", or erase the band activity window contents periodically before the issue occurs. Right-click the band activity window for a pop-up menu with and Erase option or double-left-click the Erase button on the main window to erase both the band activity and Rx frequency decodes windows.
