One thing that is very flexible with the GTK+ interface is the
showing/hiding of widgets. I would like to propose that we hide all of
the entries in the QSO-frame (the left frame were all the entries are)
when a 'special remark' QSO is selected, except for the Date and Time.
This way we will have a rather large area available for the remarks
field and it will really stand out.

Wow, you seem to be one of the very last hams that actually print their
logs! I admit there is little space on a portrait size sheet to print
the QSO data, but selecting landscape will solve all of your troubles.
And yes, a special remark can be printed on a line by itself in italics
for instance, printing is much more flexible than displaying a GUI.

So when I program some of your and my ideas, will you be able to test
it? Can you compile xlog from source?
