    I am having a problem entering data into the Sightings Entry - Checklist.  Sometimes I enter data from a paper checklist where the birds are in taxonomic order.  While doing this, I use the down arrow key to select the bird.  When I do this, I get the incorrect result if the number I wish to enter has two or more digits.  For example, If I want to enter 423 for Snow Goose, I move the cursor to the Min Count box for Snow Goose with the arrow keys.  Then I enter the number 423.  When I do this, only the number 4 shows on the screen.  The other digits are ignored.  This also happens when I select a species using the mouse to put the cursor in the Min Count box.  This doesn't happen if I use the search box with the binoculars to the right to select the species.This is extremely annoying. 







    I am using Birder's Diary 4.1.62

    Hi Jeff,

    Are you running v4.1 build 62 (e.g. 4.1.62)?

    If not, please upgrade to this build and test again. (Help | Internet: Check for Updates)

    Let me know please,

    Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    Sorry, I missed that part where you mentioned that you were running 4.1.62. 

    I am able to reproduce the problem. And yes, it is very annoying. My bad. I have fixed it in the next release, due out soon. 

    My suggestion for now, to eliminate that issue during checklist entry is to disable lifer notifications. 

    1. Open View | Options, Petey TAB
    2. Disable Celebrate Lifers - note you may have to enable Petey temporarily to disable lifers
    3. Click OK

    Let me know if I can assist further and again, very sorry for this mistake on my part.

    Jeff
