Question for you AC Log users out there.

I've been using Win-EQF for years; but I like the "look and feel" as well as some of the features of N3FJP's AC Log. I have it loaded on my desktop, my shack laptop and my netbook. I'll admit that I am paranoid and like to have double logbook redundancy (kind of like NASA during the Apollo program).

Anyway, the problem I am having is this. When I input data and tab through the fields, everything is fine until I hit the 'State" field. When I hit the tab button after the "State" field, there is a delay until I get the jump to the "Comments" field. On my shack laptop which is old and is running Windows 2000, the delay is VERY noticeable - like about 8 seconds. On my netbook, which runs XP, it's maybe 3 or 4 seconds. On my desktop, which has my fastest processor and which runs Vista, the delay is only about a second.

Am I doing something wrong? Do any of you out there notice this? I really like the program; but if I am going to have this delay every time I try to enter a new QSO, I might just stick with Win-EQF.

One of the few downfalls about this program is when you have many QSO's in the log, it's very slow. You need to make sure you're only viewing the last 50 contacts and not your entire log when looking up a callsign or entering data. I don't know how many entries you have in your log but maybe viewing only the last 50 might help? You're not doing anything wrong by using tab, that is the best way to get from point A to b. Good luck!
