Managing the Display of Text Decoded by WinWarbler
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. Clicking the right mouse button over a receive pane produces a pop-up menu that includes an Equalize all receive panes command; selecting this command equally divides the available space among the Receive panes
When operating in PSK31, PSK63, or PSK125, these keyboard shortcuts are available:
Depressing the Ctrl key while clicking the color-coded panel to the left of a Receive pane selects and enlarges that pane and hides the others
Depressing the Ctrl key while clicking the color-coded panel to the left of an enlarged Receive pane restores the receive panes to their previous state
Depressing the Alt and Ctrl keys while clicking the color-coded panel to the left of an enlarged Receive pane divides the available space equally among the previous visible 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.
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:
Save receive pane to file copies the contents of that pane to a file you select via a standard Windows file selector
View pane archive displays the contents of the pane's archive file, if it exists
Equalize all receive panes divides the available space equally among the receive panels
Clear receive pane deletes the contents of that pane.
Clear all panes deletes the contents of all receive panes
