Phone dialler in SK98

Phone dialler in SK98

2nd attempt as no replies last time. Please help if you can !!

Reading through this forum, which I do very irregularly, it's good to see that the posts are still coming in, and answers given.

I came across a small issue today when using the phone dialer. I do not actually use the phone dialer to make a telephone call (i.e. it's not connected to a telephone), but it pops up when clicking the 'call' icon, and open a box in which I made my call notes.

My actual issue is with the timer.

Above the notes area, there is a 'start' button that starts the clock that records the length of time the window is open.

My version has that timer set to 'start' which means I have to click it manually each time I click on the 'call' icon.

Is there any way of changing this so the clock auto-starts once the 'call' icon is clicked?

It's probably just a question of changing a single digit from 0 to 1, or vice versa, but I've no idea which file this would be, and in Windows 7, it's virtually impossible to see the file types in a folder.

Any feedback/suggestions would be most welcome.



RE: Phone dialler in SK98

My one-liner is that it is manual only . The button starts or stops the timer when you click on it. If you had a phone connected, you could tick a box and get an automatic stop but it only records to the nearest minute which is not much good collectively. If I'm right, there's alternatives such as phones recording seconds. Computers/laptops often come without the direct dial connection and modem these days- so maybe the future of these things is in the phone/mobile itself.
