Hi John.

Since your English is deteriorating and you still haven't given us any
pictures, I'm reluctantly conceding defeat. Maybe someone else on the
reflector has a clue but not me.

Yes and Gary it is the (|) in the I type it moves but no
letters.Yes it stays black.Black is my base color,and yellow is spots the
commands are red when they appear in the spot window...blank in the command
line screen.But,I think it.s where the computer stores the
message.V4 book says it stores it on the windows clipboard.I went there and
found nothing.But,I rebooted and it wrked...Until i hit enter...the command
was posted but did not wrk again...Its not a l32 problem...something in the

Hi John.

To clarify, the issue appears here (where the cursor points) I think:

Is that right?

On my system, as soon as I type the first character there, the gray

disappears and my typing shows up in black text on the white

Although not in this specific case, I have seen occasional display
glitches that re-sizing a problem window clears. The next time you
notice this happen, try grabbing any side or corner of the DX Cluster
window and dragging it out a bit. That may be enough to make your

Hello all,I have a small problem.It is not a upgrade problem as it
has lasted through 3-4 upgrades.And sometimes...sometimes it works.

On my packet screen.I an connected through telnet,the talk/commands
area at the bottom is black.When I type there is no display except
the little slider.Now everything works.Example I type dx(nothing
(space) I type the frequency again(nothing is seen there) (space) and
type the info...Hit enter and all the information is on the cluster
as I typed it.It is a small thing.and just a small problem.One would
think appearance.Gone there and changed xmit to red...Sure enuf when
I upload to the cluster it is red But in the area it is black...Any
ideas? 73 john
