Version 6.7 Notes


     ADIF export is provided to feed your regular logging program. All files and reports are created in the application folder except the backups you direct elsewhere. Delete the application folder and contents to “uninstall” the program. I keep the SCR-Log folder on my desktop during SCR week for easy access.


     On the other hand, if you make log only a few SCR contacts on paper, SCR-Log is a convenient way to create a Cabrillo report at the end of the week. First set the date/time option to manual entry to bypass automatic date/time stamping.


     SCR-Log does not have the certificate of authenticity expected in downloaded or emailed software. For Windows that means you must approve the program the first time you run it. For Mac Sierra (10.12) and High Sierra (10.13) that means you must request a CD-Rom. Earlier Mac OS versions have the “Allow apps from anywhere” security option. For Mac OS 10.12 and 10.13 use the Feedback page to request a CD-Rom and include a mailing address.

SCR-LOG Version 6.7 FOR WINDOWS:

     - SCR-Log for Windows requires Windows XP (SP3) or later.

     - All support files will be created inside the SCR-Log folder.


DX ENTITIES:

     The Republic of Kosovo, entity number 522, is the newest entity included in version 6.7. The most recent deletion was Malyj Vystoskij, entity number 151. If there is a newer entity you can use the “Add New DXCC Entity” option from under the “Files” menu.


CROSS-PLATFORM POSSIBILITIES:

     The Mac and Windows databases are identical. You can move "LogbookData" and “OfflineLookUp" files back and forth between Mac and Windows computers.


VERSION 6.7 BUG REPORTS:

     Windows version only: The down scroll button in the Contact Editor is not active. Use the scroll tab or mouse scroll wheel instead.

     Windows version only: (This really isn't a bug. But it's not a feature either.) The score summary panel may overflow if you increase text size to Medium (125%) in the Windows Control Panel. All is well after returning text size to the default Small (100%). Note: This is not related to the Small, Large and Ginormous Logger Size options.
