I make a number of changes to the Callsigns Window #1 using the gear icon on the lower right hand of the window. I also shut down JTAlert each evening and start it up again the next morning. I find that approximately half of the time JTAlert starts with the Callsigns window reverting to its original defaults rather than to my preferred settings. I need to resize it and change to my preferred settings again which takes less than a minute but is a bit annoying. Approximately half of the time, my settings are remembered just fine.
Ed, there is no special requirement for closing JTAlert or the Callsigns window. My preferred method is to simply close JTAlert and let it manage closing the other windows automatically.
When you say reverts to default does that also include the desktop position of the window?
There have been a very small number of reports of the Callsigns window being resized quite small to approx 1 inch square with its size and position locked. Is that the affect your seeing?
The Callsigns window will default to the 3-panel display, "All Decodes". "Callers" and "Alerts Only", views when the config file for the window is not found when first opening the window or if JTAlert is being prevented from reading the config file. This is a default window when opening without a config file.
The config file for the Callsigns window, for you, is located at %localappdata%\HamApps\JTAlert\K0KC\Config\ and is named Callsigns_1.config
Is there a possibility the file is being deleted as part of some file maintenance activity on your PC?
You may have to add an exclusion of the above directory to your PC Protection software.
