> I'm new to the group, and just started checking out FLDigi. Very nice program!!
> One thing I noticed is that FLDigi automatically starts and stops sending in CW mode as I type, if T/R is selected. This is a very nice feature, kind of like a keyboard version of Vox. However, the other modes begin sending as soon as I hit T/R. Is there any way to make T/R not send until I type something and then stop when I stop? The DM780 program, by HB9DRV, which uses much of the code from FLDigi, does that, in what it calls Break-In mode.
> I used the Yahoo Group Search function, and have read thru the various FLDigi docs/online help files (yes... I RTFM!), but didn't see anything on this.

Dual booting to Ubuntu is a snap :-)
An excerpt from the on-line help:
Pause/Break - a transmit / receive - pause button.
* if you are in the receive mode and press the Pause/Break key the
program will switch to the transmit mode. It will begin transmitting
characters at the next point in the transmit buffer following the red
(previously sent text). If the buffer only contains unsent text, then
it will begin at the first character in the buffer. If the buffer is
empty, the program will switch to transmit mode and depending on the
mode of operation will send idle characters or nothing at all until
characters are entered into the buffer.
* if you are in the transmit mode and press the Pause/Break key the
program will switch to the receive mode. There may be a slight delay
for some modes like MFSK, PSK and others that require you to send a
postamble at the end of a transmission. The transmit text buffer stays
intact, ready for the Pause/Break key to return you to the transmit mode.
* Think of the Pause/Break key as a software break-in capability.
That's about as close as we get to your request for a Break-In mode.
