Target version:-
Chirp Version:daily Platform:Windows
Model affected:Baofeng UV5RA


CHIRP software won't save Skip settings when changes are made from gridview. Will only save changes made from Properties menu choice.

Radio: Baofeng UV5RA
OS: Windows 10 (build 10586.63)
CHIRP version: daily-20160116
Cable: FTDI
NOTE: To save space when producing debug log, I did not attempt to make/save Skip changes through menu selection (i.e., the method that works) when re-creating the problem.

You are probably not completing the selection. In Windows, you click on an entry in a list to choose the the value that you want but it isn't selected yet. You must click onto another cell or press [Enter] to complete the selection. Until then, pressing the [Esc] key, clicking the [Refresh] button or doing anything else that will refresh the spreadsheet style memory editor (such as Upload to a radio or Save to a file) will return the display back to the currently selected value.

A quick way to see if you completed the selection is to press the [Refresh] button. If the values stays, it was fully selected. If it goes back to the original setting, it was chosen but not selected.

That was exactly the problem. I feel badly for posting operator error as an issue, but thanks for the help.
