Font smoothing
When the Windows option "Smooth edges of screen fonts" is engaged, the background color of the template sometimes leaks at the edges of characters on the MMSSTV template window.

There are two ways to solve this problem.
1) Turn the Windows option off. To do so, you will find the option select at:
Windows XP: Control Panel, System, Advanced, Performance, Visual effects
Windows 2000: Control Panel, Screen, Effects
Windows 98: Control Panel, Screen, Effects
2) Change the MMSSTV template option. Right click on the template window, select Options, and check Disable font smoothing. When this option is selected, the font smoothing function of Windows is disabled only within the MMSSTV template window.

EXTPTT port is provided for the PTT operation using a special USB device, which was originally made for FSK keying. To make use of this port, select EXTPTT in the PTT port drop-down list of TX pane of Setup MMSSTV. EXTFSK.DLL is prerequisite for the operation.
