Hi Fred,

First thanks for the report.

Better use 'ENTER' to switch from one QSO state to the next (including

I kept CTRL-G as it was used in the former - very limited - bandmap
display and did not want to irritate long time TLF users with a new key
combination. But CTRL-< sounds like an alternative for the future.

Thanks for reporting. I will look into this.

OK. It will be user adaptable in the future.

I know, but that is a lot of work in TLF as a whole. Thanks for
reminding me.

First the colour problem: You can define the 16 colors which xterm uses
in your ~/.Xdefault and restart X or 'xrdb .Xdefault', e.g.:

*color0:  #000000
*color8:  #555753
! DarkRed + Red
*color1:  #ff6565
*color9:  #ff8d8d
! DarkGreen + Green
*color2:  #93d44f
*color10: #c8e7a8

Regards 'MEM' display and bottom bar - that is respected for me. Any
other station can confirm this?

The .paras file is not really used - I do not know if it was ever.
Please use the logcfg.dat for setting your messages. But the displayed
top bar is a fixed text (as it seems it was from the beginning).
Changign that bar according to your CW messages is already on the todo
