Summary0002680: Documentation: could explain WSI a bit better
DescriptionThe WSI section of the Logbook's documentation could stand some improvement.

1) The documentation doesn't describe the "B", "M" or "C" columns shown in the settings dialog screenshot -- what do these mean? (Turns out the reader can deduce the meaning from the right-most column in the dialog box, once they get over the fact that "=" isn't a column heading.)

2) The product shows a column "S" which isn't described. What does it mean?

3) The documentation doesn't explain the "QSL types in Worked Status Indicators" group box. What do these controls do/mean? What is a "Confirmation search"?

4) Which logbook is the "ONLY open logbook" if I have multiple logbooks open? Does this mean the logbook with the currently selected tab? But maybe no logbook is selected (eg, when the Logfile tab is selected)?

I've updated the documentation.

The row coloring is based on WSI values, but colored rows are not WSIs.

I have no idea what a "Confirmation Search" is and I can't find any reference in the Wiki or the UI.

The addition of this "Use ONLY open logbook for WSI" is problematic and I opposed its addition. There are a whole lot of potential problems and unanswered questions here. Among them:

- What if there are multiple logs open?
- What if this option is checked, but the "Include in worked status lookups" is selected for unopened databases? Is this a conflict? I don't know. (see image)

But at this point, the documentation is as complete as it's going to get without answering some of these questions.

Closing this item.
