locked What happened to Ignore callsign option


WB5JJJ - George
 

Prior to the new redesign, I had the option to ignore a callsign during this instance of JTA until a restart or permanently.  This was really useful when you start to get annoyed by an alert for a certain callsign and want to just mute him for the duration.  I could drill down the menu system and set their call to ignore, but the click was so much easier and didn't take but a second.  I miss that.  

This is most prevalent when an "Alaska" or "Hawaii" call keeps being announced on 6m, but they are actually now in AZ or CA.  They just don't realize the grief (but probably do and enjoy it) they cause by not changing their call from a most wanted one to where they now permanently reside.  But they do get a lot of "hits", but no confirmation of any real value to the uninformed.

Would be nice to have that on the right-click on the call sign.

It is ... if you enable it in Callsigns Window -> Settings -> Menus

Look at "ignore Management"

It's there! I rarely remove existing functionality. If I do it is documented. In this case, it was new functionality

The release notes...
2.50.1 (2021-May-01)

  New:

    - Callsigns window: The callsign right-click context menu can be customized.
       It can be turned off completely or individual entries can be hidden.

I believe that was a default setting before.  I keep forgetting about the "gear" in the Callsigns window after I initially set thing up.  Would be nice to see that temporary ignore (session) as a default again.  

Once I made those selections, all is back to before 2.50 operations, I think.  Maybe I've just not needed something that was there before.
