Locked Re: Feature suggestion

Hi John,
I log my QSOs in a logging program (RumLogNG on macOS), then regularly export the whole log as a .adif file. In the 'Colors' tab of the WSJT-X settings dialog, there's a button to 'Rescan ADIF log'. Clicking this causes WSJT-X to record all the worked stations in there - so they won't be highlighted as 'CQ'.

The file it scans is in your log directory (use File/Open log directory) - e.g. on macOS it's /Users/matt/Library/Application Support/WSJT-X - and the file that's loaded is called wsjtx_log.adi. On macOS and Linux systems you can use a symbolic link instead of this file to point to another file, so I've replaced that file with a link to my exported .adif file (wsjtx_log.adi -> /Users/matt/Documents/RUMlog-AllSoFar.adif). I think there's a mechanism for creating links on Windows.

I don't know of any way to change the path/file WSJT-X uses for its 'Rescan ADIF log' option, which would make this a bit easier! Sorry, not on a Windows system at the moment, so can't find where WSJT-X stores its config on there. (The above is from my v2.0.1 installation; later versions may be different).

I don't know if any of that functionality already exists as I am a new user, but nice ideas.

I'd like to know if it's possible to show a user you've worked before in a different colour or something so I don't keep working the same people.
