    Can anyone explain why sometimes when I clarify a last name the board makes me use the alpha button? It only seems to happen about 2 or 3 times a week but I can't seem to figure out why it does this. Most of the time you just type in the last name and move on,then sometimes(although rare)it just beeps when trying to use the number/letter keys.:why:

    A quirk in the diad. It happens here as well. And it isn't any one particular diad.

    It happens to me a few times also. I think it happens if I accidentally hit the toggle switch for the numbers/alpha.

    I stay in alpha mode all the time. When I need a number I hold down the toggle while keying the number.

    Don't worry about it. There are more important things in life to fret about.

    I noticed that it does it with different DIADS also.

    Trust me I don't worry about things like this that much I was really just curious.

    Ditto, no a big problem, but I would like to know why it does that.

    I think your DIAD has a virus....

    I would have to agree but it happens even when I get a new DIAD.

    I run virus scan on my DIAD once a week. When was the last time you ran the virus scan?

    Maybe it's all the porn I download on my DIAD.:knockedout:

    Does any of your diads make a sound like someone tapping on a wine glass with a pencil during intermittent signature stops?

    Yes, if you squeeze the diad window it will make sounds. Sounds like someone pecking inside. come to think about it could be a sup. caught in there?????:biting::biting:

    i believe it will take the clarification whether in numeric mode or alpha mode if you type it in right away. if you wait a bit to type it in it will force you to be in alpha mode.

    That's what I thought also but lately it seems to do it right away.
