Francis Thompson <icongeo@...>
 

Neal,

I do this and for the same reasons. Operating position is upstairs, the radio and controlling computer is in the conservatory. Too hot in summer, too cold in winter. You control WSJT on the computer connected to the rig and that is where your log lives, in my case DXKeeper. The computer upstairs is just a clone and you can do everything except tune the ATU. You can probably do that too if you use an additional program of some sort on the controlling computer connected to the rig.

I use a program called Team Viewer. Its easy to set up, works a treat and it's free.
Maybe this would help?

Hi Brian, 

It seems your date and transmit time fields are displayed in Arabic numerals. The other record time fields are all "000000", and the clock is in normal numerals. 

There seems to be two, maybe related, problems. Why are received messages timestamped with "000000" and why are other numbers displaying other characters. 

I know I advised looking at your 
internationalisation. What about date and time?

Brian,

You may have gotten a corrupted file, which would require a different solution, but I would try Consolas Bold Font for both Labels and Decodes. It's a standard Win10 Font, so you should have it, assuming you are running Win.

 

It is very easy to read and has slashed zeros, which I much prefer. Size as you like it.

 

In WSJT-X :

 

Files > Settings > General > Font : Consolas Bold 14

Files > Settings > General . Decoded Text Font: Consolas Bold 15

 

Obviously size the font to your taste. I like it so much, I went into every app I run and changed things to Consolas Bold. Much easier on my old eyes!

 

Try it, you might like it. 73

It's not a font problem. There is some sort of code corruption or possibly memory problem.
I'd reload WSJTX first and see if that helps. If not, then restore the most recent backup of your machine.

Brian,
You may have gotten a corrupted file, which would require a different solution, but I would try Consolas Bold Font for both Labels and Decodes. It's a standard Win10 Font, so you should have it, assuming you are running Win.

It is very easy to read and has slashed zeros, which I much prefer. Size as you like it.

In WSJT-X :

Files > Settings > General > Font : Consolas Bold 14
Files > Settings > General . Decoded Text Font: Consolas Bold 15

Obviously size the font to your taste. I like it so much, I went into every app I run and changed things to Consolas Bold. Much easier on my old eyes!

Try it, you might like it. 73

Phil,

Thank you for your feedback. As far as I know the Language Fonts is set properly. I have looked to see if there are any additional settings but can not find anything. If I am missing something please feel free to comment.

They look like Arabic numerals to me. What have you got set in your international settings on W10?

I installed WSJT and am having a problem with unreadable font in some of the text boxes. I have searched through the messages and cant find a similar experience. I apologize if I missed something. I have installed WSJT on 3 different Windows 10 computers with the same result. On one of the computers I have even restored windows 10 from a clean installation. I hope it is something simple that I am missing. Any help would be appreciated. (see pictures below)

 

  1. Main screen  has several text boxes with corrupted font.
  2. QSO confirmation window start and trop time corrupted.
  3. Text LOG information not being filled in properly/

 

 

MAIN SCREEN

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hasan,

Thank you for your feedback. I changed the font to your recommendation “Consolas Bold” but it did not fix the unreadable text boxes. In the past I have tried several fonts with the same results. What is strange is some text boxes are ok other are consistently corrupted.

Hi Mike,

If you happened to choose Omni-Rig as your library for interfacing the rig, I may be able to help you by sending an updated rig definition file that fixed some issues with the definition that comes with the release.
