    Hi - new to FT8 and when I first starting working with it, the waterfall display was useful. For some reason, the display now appears 'compressed' and is useless. If I try to drag the window wider, it simply widens the scale to 6000Hz leaving the area of interest compressed and unchanged.
    I cannot see any menus for reformatting the waterfall display to expand/zoom the region of interest to be useful.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Fiddle with the "bits per pixel" setting - at least I think that is what it is called...

    It's the "Bins/Pixel n" control in the upper left of the waterfall control cluster. Setting it to 2 will probably help.

    Thanks! Yeah - that was it.
