Oh!!! So that's what that field is for! I have mouse-overs disabled and I had the exact same issue Ken did. Where did the country field go?! Personally, I have no need for the AZ field and I don't know why the "Op" or Operator field is so long. I know that doing User Interfaces is always a balance but I would encourage you to consider re-labeling the Country and Notes fields if possible in future versions of Fldigi.
The fields are sized to allow sufficient width for non-English fonts and entry lengths. The field positions are laid out to provide visual balance. Adding a label for Country and/or Notes would add unnecessary white space around the controls. Perhaps you might design a more ergonomic layout David. The layout code is in src/dialogs/fl_digi.cxx (the largest single source file). There are three different logging layouts, so you should address all three. Do you use the Rx panel right-click-menu to populate the fields? Do you use the "lookup call" functionality? Just captured this on 20 meters
The fields were populated via a call the HamQTH (a free service)
