Managing the Display of Decoded Text

Decoded text is sequentially appended to a Receive pane. Each Receive pane has a vertical scrollbar along its right side, allowing you to view information which has scrolled off the pane. The only limit to each Receive pane's information retention is the amount of free space on the disk drive hosting WinWarbler. You can change the font name, style, size, and color used to display decoded text via WinWarbler's display settings.

Receive panes are separated by splitter bars. You can move a splitter bar by placing the mouse cursor on it; when the mouse cursor changes to a double-headed arrow, use the left mouse button to drag the splitter to its desired location, reallocating available screen space between the adjacent Receive Panes.

To freely scroll a Receive pane, you must first suspend the pane's display of incoming information; do so by clicking on the color-coded panel to the left of the pane you wish to scroll. A pane's channel label blinks while it is suspended. To resume the display of incoming information -- including that which arrived while the display was suspended, click on the color-coded panel to the left of the pane. You can suspend a pane for up to an hour without loss of incoming information.

To copy text from a Receive pane to the Windows clipboard, use the standard Windows left-click and drag gesture. This gesture automatically suspends the pane. Click on the color-coded panel to the left of the pane to resume the pane's display of incoming information.

To facilitate logging, double-clicking on a word in a receive pane copies that word to the appropriate QSO Info panel item.

The contents of the QSO Info panel items are maintained separately for each receive channel; whenever you switch channels, these items are updated to reflect whatever information you have captured from that channel.

Clicking the right mouse button over a receive pane produces a pop-up menu with five commands:
