Hi Lynn,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Once your QSO is successfully uploaded to eQSL from within AC Log, there will be an E in the sent confirmed by field.  AC Log won't attempt to send those contacts again with the All Contacts Not Uploaded command.

Enjoy!

Uploading contacts to LoTW works fine. Uploading to Eqsl-- Click on All Contacts not uploaded-- sends the entire log.
Is there a setting I have missed?
Happened with the previous version also.

The menu offset and shrinkage still occurs at 100%. The monitor is landscape. But then the Awards dialog doesn’t have the correct layout, elements overlap and it’s unusable. 

my setup is a multi monitor stress test (somewhat intentionally). The left monitor is secondary and offset, like  |—.  So that means it’s coordinate space is negative and it’s origin is completely negative. The two monitors also have different scales, 150% on the left and 200% on the center. 

thanks for the quick response,

Hi Mel,

Thanks for your follow up.  It doesn't matter whether you type the full county name or the abbreviation.  The program will accept the entry either way.

Both abbreviations you sent along work fine:

All is well.

Re: more 4k monitor woes

Jay
 

Chris, 
I too see the same issues with my 4K monitors; the awards dialog box, the LOTW upload screen, and the VHF contest software all look similar to your pic of the awards dialog box.
The only way to fix it was to blow it up almost to the full size of the monitor, which takes up entirely too much room - My plan to move to 4K was to see more things on the monitor at once, not less - so I am still dealing with how to position the logging software and still see everything else. All of my monitors run the same resolution and settings. AClogs visual elements don't scale well on 4K.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] more 4k monitor woes

Hi Folks,

I've been digging through the multimonitor and 4K threads and it's not clear to my if my situation is supported. I just started trying the program today and I like what I can get to so far.

My setup: left monitor, portrait mode 1440 x 2560. Scale at 150%. Don't plan on using AC Log on it.
Center monitor, landscape mode, 3840 x 2160. Scale at 200%.

Running with my monitor scale at 100% isn't an option due to other software I use the requires the scale increase to be operable.

Problem #1: Menu's show up unscaled and offset (possibly just the unscaled localtion) with the shadow showing up offset by the origin of the window (I think). Here's me clicking on the Awards menu.



The awards form has font scaling issues, making it unusable. Unfortunately if I change form scaling to 50%, then the main window is too small.



I can find a compromise if the form size is 80%. The Awards dialog is huge, filling up the 4k display, but workable.

But the menus are still very difficult to use.

I am a desktop application programmer by trade, and about a decade ago I had to spend a lot of time adapting our software to work correctly in all these use cases. My colleague ended up creating a new view framework and we had to port our code to it. It was not fun. I have another program from a different programmer that is having similar menu item issues and I wonder if you all are using the same framework under the hood.

Practically, if I set the form size to 80% I can get everything usable from a font size and dialog layout perspective, but the menus are still broken.

Is that something you are tracking?

I apologize in advance for slow replies during the work week. I will not have time to poke at this again until the weekend.

thanks,
chris

Ya I did the same thing but I just ended up clicking on the county and worked the qso. I figured that I could change things after the contest was over knowing I wouldn't have that many entries. I called a friend and told him of the problem after my first qso and he said don't worry about it, that it would convert to the right format when I made my cabrillo file. What a relief lol.

Hi Scott,

I got the AClog mainly to help me with running my nets during the week.  For the most part it does an excellent job , but i am wondering if there is a way to configure the columns used in the Net/roundtable manager?

Our club tracks City for demographic purposes as our repeater reached across 2 different states. I managed to get the City field included in the main component of AClog but i do not see any way to edit the setup for the Net Manager?

Am I missing something or is it just not possible ?

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] more 4k monitor woes

Hi Folks,

I've been digging through the multimonitor and 4K threads and it's not clear to my if my situation is supported. I just started trying the program today and I like what I can get to so far.

My setup: left monitor, portrait mode 1440 x 2560. Scale at 150%. Don't plan on using AC Log on it.
Center monitor, landscape mode, 3840 x 2160. Scale at 200%.

Running with my monitor scale at 100% isn't an option due to other software I use the requires the scale increase to be operable.

Problem #1: Menu's show up unscaled and offset (possibly just the unscaled localtion) with the shadow showing up offset by the origin of the window (I think). Here's me clicking on the Awards menu.



The awards form has font scaling issues, making it unusable. Unfortunately if I change form scaling to 50%, then the main window is too small.



I can find a compromise if the form size is 80%. The Awards dialog is huge, filling up the 4k display, but workable.

But the menus are still very difficult to use.

I am a desktop application programmer by trade, and about a decade ago I had to spend a lot of time adapting our software to work correctly in all these use cases. My colleague ended up creating a new view framework and we had to port our code to it. It was not fun. I have another program from a different programmer that is having similar menu item issues and I wonder if you all are using the same framework under the hood.

Practically, if I set the form size to 80% I can get everything usable from a font size and dialog layout perspective, but the menus are still broken.

Is that something you are tracking?

I apologize in advance for slow replies during the work week. I will not have time to poke at this again until the weekend.

thanks,
chris

Thanks for the report Wilbur.  Are you also using two different monitors, each with different dimensions?
