Where the misterious cqrlog.ini file is located?

This is a really dumb question but I've not been able to find the .INI file of my CQRLOG!
Where it is supposed to be saved?

Funniest story because I created a new database since I decided to stop each log at 1000 QSO max. limit and I noticed that new DB has not any of my saved settings then I closed it and run the Utils import function to import the ini file of old DB but then despite searching several time I have not found such file on my system!

Thanks and 73

Hi!

If you want to use same settings to another log you must export settings. Open the old log. Then go NewQSQ/File/Open or create new log.
There is button Utils and when pressing that you get Configuration and Export.
That will do the ini file.

During runtime you can find settings file named by number of open log from ~/.cqnfig/cqrlog, but once you close cqrlog it is deleted and settings are saved to mysql database table from where they are fetched at new startup back to file. That is not recommended to use as copy as it might not have all latest changes applied (file is still open in memory)

When you have another log that you want to have same settings do not open it. Just select it from Database Open window at startup or if you are running cqrlog already from NewQSQ/File/Open or create new log. This case remember that currently open log is not the log you want to do Utils/confiquration/Import.

Importing to open log does not lead to expected results.

Dear Saku,

I've been able to do this export/import of the settings before reading your reply.

Everything get smooth but there is still some points which need further insights.

One of these is the fact that by creating a new log you miss all the DXCC/ZONE scores you collected so far on previous log because these data is restarted from scratch creating a new log.

IMHO, CQRLOG should offer to the user the option to update DXCC/ZONE score collected and merge it on the new log.

The good to create separated logs is that in case you have to do some export/import of the ADIF file you can handle such data more easily with smaller file size, using for example 1000 QSO per log maximum, as I decided to do with my logs management.

Thanks Saku and take care!

Hi !

I understand your point.
How ever cqrlog is designed to make totally different logs without any connection to others.
DXCC/ZONE information is build against qsos in log, so it can not be transferred to empty log.

My suggestion is that you keep those max 1000 logs but make one log called to ALL. Then add all filled small logs to that and you can have DXCC total from the ALL log.
Unfortunately you can not get missing DXCC info unless you have log ALL open.

Another idea (but untested) is that you create new qth profiles and add only 1000 qsos per one profile still having all qsos in one log.
Using QSO list/filter(by qth profile) before ADIF export/label printing etc. limits your operations only to that profile's qsos.

Hello Saku,

Thanks again for your feedback, it looks like the main developers of CQRLOG are not "so responsive so far"...

The workarounds you explained above are not looking to be much practical to me then I prefer to keep on this, let's say, limitation, hoping that next CQRLOG release could include all the features requests submitted so far by the users, including mine regarding DXCC merging when creating a new log.

Wish to you all the very best!
